Signs You Need Your Starter Repaired or Replaced

When the starter needs repair or replacing in your vehicle, it can be difficult to diagnose the issue if you are not a mechanic. Some of the most common signs that the starter is going bad include:
  • Something sounds off when you start the car
  • The dash lights up and radio is on, but your car will not start
  • The engine will not start
  • There is smoke coming from under the hood
  • When examined, you notice that the starter is soaked in oil
Any of these symptoms can indicate a faulty starter. At Barr’s Auto Electric, experienced mechanics know to inspect the vehicle for loose wires, bad connections, corrosion, damaged or old parts, and more to find a solution to the problem. We provide repairs, rebuilds, and replacements for starters in personal, commercial, and industrial vehicles.
