What is a Car or Truck 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.” *

What Does a Broken Car Starter Sound Like?
A bad car starter can make a variety of noises. These often range from obvious loud clacking sounds to high-pitched screeching, or an unpleasant grinding noise to irregular whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, you might turn the key and still hear nothing at all. This is typically because of the various components that make up an engine starter system.
How to Tell if Your Nissan Starter is Going Bad?
When checking to see if your Nissan car starter is needs to be replaced, every auto mechanic, factory-certified or not, should always begin by determining if the battery is full. Generally speaking, batteries need to be changed out far more often than your car’s engine starter needs to be replaced. This is easily done with a battery multimeter or a battery load tester. If it’s working, it’s still possible that the issue is the battery connections, relay fuse, computer, theft immobilizer, or neutral safety switch. As always, your best source is your area dealer service center. Short of actually removing and testing the broken starter, a diagnosis generally incorporates a process of elimination.
