Starter & Ignition FAQs

How long do ignition starters last?

Your car, truck, or utility vehicle's starter should keep you going for roughly 100,000 to 150,000 miles on average. But remember, proactive care like regular maintenance can add even more miles to its journey. Keep an eye out for early signs of wear and tear to ensure your trusty starter keeps your engine pumping for years to come.

Are the ignition and starter the same thing?

Tucked away alongside the transmission on the passenger side sits the unsung hero of engine initiation: the starter motor. This powerful electric dynamo uses the car's battery to crank the engine into action, while the ignition switch, strategically positioned on the steering column, acts as the conductor, sending the signal to get things started.

Can a bad starter drain a battery?

Excessive current draw by the starter motor is a telltale sign of malfunction. Though your vehicle might cranking up now, this abnormal power drain will eventually deplete the battery and further damage the starter if left unaddressed.

What makes a starter go bad?

A loose or corroded electrical connection is the most common suspect for a struggling starter. However, internal issues like malfunctioning windings, worn-out brushes, or other electrical glitches can sap the starter's strength, preventing it from generating enough torque to crank the engine effectively.

Do I need a new key if I replace the ignition switch?

While swapping keys with a new ignition switch might work for vintage models using simple keys, modern vehicles with sophisticated security systems or intricate electronics often require a brand new key. This ensures compatibility and maintains the system's integrity.
