Starter Motor Repairs and Replacement

Are you having trouble starting your car? Do you hear a clicking sound every time you turn the key? You might have a problem with your car’s starter motors. No worries, we can offer the best solution for you!

It relies on your battery, so if you have a dead battery, the starter won’t start your engine.

Can I Start My Car Even If I Have A Faulty Starter Motor?

No. If you suspect that you only have a low battery voltage, you can try to jump-start your car.  If it still won’t start your car, the starter motor is already damaged. 

How Long Does A Starter Motor Usually Last?

On average, the starter motors can last for 100,000-150,000 miles of usage. Most of the time, starter motors last for the lifetime of the vehicle. But there are also a lot of factors to consider on why a starter motor suddenly fails.
