Starter is a key element of the engine, which spins the shaft to start the engine. This mechanism is not so simple. Starter’s components are engine, clutch and releasing unit with the shaft of the main engine, gearbox and starting device. The last element is only for starters that do not run on their own, such as gasoline or turbo. Starters’ principle of operation is different. For example, inertia starters differ from others by the fact that they first spin up the flywheel. It accumulates energy necessary to scroll through the main shaft of the engine when it adheres with the shaft. In its turn, direct-action starter spins the shaft of the main engine.

Today there is a great variety of starters: electric, gasoline, pneumatic, hydraulic and turbine starters. The main problem with starters is that they do not go on or there appears a loud gnashing when turning it on. If you have problems with switching on of the starter, you must first turn on lights or lighting inside the car and see how the glow changes. If it remains the same, this means there is no current in the starter. This problem indicates a fault in the circuit, scorching of the drive rolling pin and starter relay clamps. In addition this may be a result of brushes wear, contamination of the reservoir and spring brush holders reducing.

Other sign of failure is presence of clicks when you turn on the starter, which speaks about the problems with the starter relay and starting relay. If you hear frequent clicks and bumps against the flywheel gear, this means that in the winding of the starter relay there is a break. Malfunction may occur because of wear, starting gear teeth and flywheel nicks. In this case when turning on the starter you will hear a sharp sound or gnashing. Do not give way to despair if your starter breaks. You can always replace the whole starter or its component. To do this, simply go to the catalogue in our online store and select the desired item, whether it is a flywheel or turn-relay interrupter.


Faults of starter
  • wear of brushes;
  • closure of armature windings;
  • clogging of commutator or brushes;
  • wear of the drive gear teeth or the flywheel;
  • breakage of the connection wires;
  • cracks in the casing;
  • scorching of commutator;
  • wear of shaft bearing.
Symptoms of faulty starter
  • presence of abnormal sounds while driving;
  • when you turn the key in the ignition the starter does not start;
  • after starting the engine the starter does not turn off;
  • the car does not start with the working starter.
Causes of the starter malfunctions
  • oxidation of the starter terminals and of the battery terminals;
  • discharged battery;
  • the lack of contact between the brushes and looseness of cable terminals;
  • significant bearing wear;
  • holes in the flywheel teeth;
  • breaking of battery.

If the starter does not work, first check whether its wires are connected to the battery wire. If the connection is normal, turn on lights or sound. Dim lighting or quiet sound indicate that the problem is in a discharged battery. Another option of starter diagnostics is removal of the wire from the terminals "30" and "50" of the ignition switch and connecting them together. If this will run the starter, then the ignition switch needs repair . Otherwise, connect an additional wire to the output of the solenoid starter switch. Now you need to touch the "plus" of the battery with the other end of the wire. If the starter does not run after that, the repair cannot be avoided.

At a service center the starter diagnostics will be run on the test stand. First, experts will check individual elements for operability and then proceed to the diagnosis of the starter with the test equipment.
