Starter and Alternator Replacements

Starting your car should be easy, but issues can arise from time to time. Fully functional components such as the alternator, battery, and starter are vital to your vehicle starting and running safely and reliably. At Sun Devil Auto, we are committed to providing you with expert auto repair advice and services.

Don’t Ignore Starter Issues

When your vehicle fails to start, it’s important to determine what symptoms your vehicle is experiencing while attempting to start it. Place your key into the ignition and pay attention to what happens next. If your vehicle has any of the following symptoms, the issue may be related to the starter:

  • Headlights, taillights and lights on the dash come on, but vehicle does not start
  • Engine makes a grinding noise when turning over
  • Hear a single clicking sound when turning on your car, but the engine does not start

You may be able to get your vehicle running after retrying for several minutes. However, you should have your starter replaced as soon as possible to prevent additional and often unnecessary repairs.

Alternator Not Functioning?

It’s easy to confuse a bad alternator with a bad starter or battery. A bad alternator can prevent the battery from holding a charge to start and drive your vehicle. To determine if your alternator is bad, look for the following signs:

  • Battery or alternator symbol is on
  • Voltage gauge on the dash reads low
  • No power, but clicking noise occurs when the key is turned in the ignition

A bad alternator can also drain a good battery, so it is important to check the overall condition of your vehicle after replacement.
