At some point in time, if you’ve owned a car for very long, you may have experienced starting problems. One day, your car starts just fine, the next day, it won’t start at all. However, before replacing the starter, make sure to have the alternator and battery checked out. If these components have been ruled out as the cause of your starting problem, then you will know that the car starter is the culprit!

Car starters were designed to last for many miles in a variety of driving conditions, up to at least 100,000 miles if not for the entire life of your car. However, just the wear and tear of daily use, extreme driving conditions, and poor maintenance can all create starting problems.

So what causes a car starter to go bad? Drivers should know about the following issues about car starters:

  • The brushes, gears, and coil windings within the starter itself wear out,
  • The solenoid has gone bad, or
  • Loose bolts do not allow the starter to engage when the key is turned in the ignition.
  • The starter may be poorly installed.

A word of advice: Don’t try to keep forcing your car to start when there is obviously a problem with the car starter. You will only create further damage to the starter, making it even worse!

Concerned about what causes a car starter to go bad? Contact our ASE Certified Technicians at Cannon Auto Repair for more information about alternators and to schedule an appointment. Our auto shop serves vehicle owners in Cannon Falls, MN, and the surrounding areas.
