What does a Starter Motor do?

The starter motor is an electrical motor attached to the engine's flywheel that assists in starting the engine's car. As you turn the key to start the car the starter motor is activated and will drive the flywheel to start the actual engine. Once the engine has started the starter motor will automatically switch off.

How do you know there is something wrong with the Starter Motor?

  • When the engine does not start when turning the key to start the car.
  • When the starter motor makes more noise than is usually the case.
  • When there is a clicking noise when turning the ignition key.
  • When starting the car is more problematic than usual.

When should you consider a Starter Motor replacement?

Over time problems can occur with the starter motor due extensive use. You could find that the car will not start or has trouble starting properly. In some cases it can be that the starter motor has worn out. In other cases it can malfunction, usually due to a short circuit in the system. Other times parts of the motor can rust, it might be that the electrical connectors have been affected, preventing an adequate flow of current to reach the motor.

Should you experience an issue like this or those listed earlier, then it is advisable to have the starter motor inspected and, if necessary, have it replaced. Seeing that the starter motor is a component that is especially prone to wear it should always be serviced as and when stipulated in the guidelines set out by your car's manufacturer.
