Remanufactured or new, original Honda starters go by many names. Whether you call yours a starter motor, cranking motor, or even a self-starter, how it works is the same. Moreover, it's uncomplicated: all a starter does is rotate or "crank" your engine using a dedicated motor and relay. This is what gets it running. A remote starter can do this via a smart key fob, at the push of a button. When starters won't turn engines, however -- or won't do it consistently -- it's usually because they're going out or they've gone bad. The most common causes of starter failure are loose wiring, dirty or rusted terminals, battery corrosion, and damaged starter parts. Fortunately, you can easily recognize its signs. First, try starting your engine. If it won't turn, but your dash lights up anyway, that's one sign. If it does turn, but your car only starts in some gears or drive modes but not others, that's another sign. Now, try jump-starting your car. If it won't start afterward, that's yet another sign. Other symptoms include a smoking starter and, upon inspection, finding your starter covered in oil. The best fix is to simply install another genuine Honda starter. Your OEM makes them specifically for its models, after all, and that guarantees compatibility. Our auto parts store has a wide selection. You can even buy your new starter online.
