Everything You Need to Know About Starters
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.
What They Do
They 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 a starter won't turn an engine, however -- or won't do it consistently -- it's usually because it's going out or it's gone bad.
The Most Common Causes of Starter Failure
- Loose wiring
- Dirty or rusted terminals
- Battery corrosion
- Damaged starter parts
Fortunately, you can easily recognize the symptoms of it.
Signs it's Happening
First, try starting your engine. If it won't turn, but your dash lights up anyway, that's one. If it does turn, but your car only starts in some gears or drive modes but not others, that's another. Now, try jump-starting your car. If it won't start afterward, that's yet another.
Others include a smoking starter and, upon inspection, finding your starter covered in oil. The best fix, in such cases, is to simply install another genuine Honda starter.
Why You Should Buy Genuine OEM
Honda makes them specifically for its models, and that guarantees their compatibility with yours.
