Your car’s starter is the part that turns your car’s engine on when you turn the key or press the start button. Without a working car starter, your car’s engine will not turn over when you try to start it. This small electric motor can easily be removed and replaced when issues arise or when it breaks entirely. If your car is having issues starting or you have to turn the engine over multiple times there may be an issue with your starter.
When your car starts displaying starting problems it could be a sign it’s time to replace the starter. There are several signs that could show that your Buick or GMC’s starter is going bad. For example, some starters don’t go out all at once and this results in your car starting sometimes and not starting at all at other times.
Other signs include your car taking longer than expected to turn on, strange noises such as grinding or clicking sounds, the internal lights or dashboard lights dimming, or in some cases the car not responding at all.
If you don’t replace your car’s starter this can make daily driving very frustrating if not outright impossible. Your car not being reliable when starting can leave you in situations where your car won’t start in the morning or in the worst case scenario leaves you stranded.
Once your car’s engine is engaged the starter is not needed however, once you turn the engine off a faulty starter means you may not be able to start the car again.
