How to Know if You Have a Bad Starter

Imagine you wake up in the morning and you get ready to go to work. As soon as you enter your vehicle everything seems normal until you enter your key into the ignition. You turn the key, and nothing happens. Your starter has failed and has left you stranded.

Your starter does give you warning signs if it is about to fail. If you notice a grinding noise when you try to start the vehicle this may be a sign that the drive gear is worn, or it is having trouble engaging. If you notice smoke coming from your starter this may be an electrical issue with the starter or a circuit.

If you feel like your starter is not working properly you can stop by our service center in Great Falls, MT and have your vehicle inspected. Our team at Honda of Great Falls wants you to be safe when traveling on the road and we don’t want to get stranded.
