Here's a little-known fact about the factory starter in your Honda vehicle. It's a motor in its own right. Most modern-day starters are electric, so you only need to turn the ignition key to kick things off. You may not even have to do that, if your Honda model features a start button.
How Your Starter Works
A starter is also known as a self-starter, cranking motor, or starter motor. It's connected to the solenoid, which pulls electricity from the battery. The solenoid directs that electricity to the starter, causing the starter gear to push forward, connect to the gear teeth on the engine's flywheel, and rotate them. That forces your engine into action.
Signs of a Failing Starter
Unfortunately, even the best starters can eventually go bad or get damaged. Look for the following:
- Trouble with the engine not cranking
- Your dash lights come on but the engine won't turn over
- A clicking noise when you try to start
Don't jump to conclusions and think that your alternator or spark plugs need replacing. First, make sure to have your starter checked. If it is the source of your problems, the solution is right at hand. Find the genuine Honda starter that's guaranteed to work with your model, right here in our online auto parts catalog.
