What are the signs of a bad starter?

  • No Crank: You go to start your car but nothing happens, or you hear a clicking sound. Do a quick check of your headlights and cabin lights. If they're dimmer than usual, it may be your battery. If they're bright, it's time to check your starter.
  • Slow Crank: You crank your car, but it's extremely slow to turn over. It may even be so slow that the car doesn't actually start. If your battery is charged, that slow crank means it's time to check your starter.

If you think your starter's having issues, bring your car or truck in to any of our stores for a quick inspection.
