Honda Won’t Start But Your Lights Still Go On?

If your car won’t start but your lights still go on, then it’s likely that it’s time for a vehicle starter repair. If you’re near the Nashville area, call us for assistance.

Your Honda Won’t Turn Over But Has Power?

When it comes to vehicle starter problems, it typically takes a full diagnostic. From ignition to starter to battery, there are multiple components of the ignition system, so finding the correct issue is absolutely essential.

What is a Car Starter?

“A car starter is a powerful electric motor that cranks your engine in order to start your car. The starting system consists of the motor itself, and the attached solenoid. The solenoid is what takes battery power and delivers it to the starter motor. It also pushes the starter gear forward, allowing it to mesh with the gear teeth of the engine’s flywheel. A high current is needed to start your car, so your battery has to have enough “juice” to enable the car starting system to work properly. Most of the time, when a car won’t start and the battery is fully charged, the starter motor is to blame. Starters do wear out.” *

Car Starter Issues – FAQ

Understanding the finer nuances of vehicle starter repair and problems is not for all. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when a Honda engine won’t turn over but has power.

How Much Does It Cost For a New Car Starter?

As car starter systems typically vary from engine to engine, there is no price that we can quote for each model, and especially not for every service center. When you call us, be sure to have the vehicle make, model, year, and trim level on hand. Even then, it will take a diagnostic to provide a cost estimate.

What Sound Does a Bad Starter Make?

Typically, a faulty car starter will make a variety of sounds. These often range from obvious loud clicking noises to high-pitched screeching, or an unwelcome grinding noise to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, you might turn the key in the ignition and hear no noises at all. This is normally because of the multiple components that make up a starter system.

How to Tell if Your Honda Vehicle Starter is Bad?

When checking to see if the Honda vehicle starter is broken, every mechanic, factory-trained or not, should first begin with a battery test. Generally speaking, batteries need to be changed out far more often than your Honda starter needs to be replaced. This is easily done with a multimeter or a load tester. If it’s working, it’s still possible that it’s the battery connections, relay fuse, computer, theft immobilizer, or neutral safety switch. As always, your go-to source is your area dealer service center. Short of actually removing and testing the broken starter, a diagnosis typically involves a process of elimination.

We always dreaded car purchasing as it seemed as if they were playing games with us but not at Gallatin Honda. From the moment we walked in and met with Michael Harris, sales we knew that there were not going to be any games. We had researched the Honda CRV and drove it and loved it. The manager, Reed, Koehler gave us a fair price beating other suv dealers prices. Great value and great team at Gallatin Honda! Thank you
