Subaru Starter System Repair Service Information in Seattle, WA

Carter Subaru Ballard Common Services: Starter System Repair

Get your starter system repaired at Carter Subaru Ballard in Seattle, WA

If you go to start your car in the morning and it doesn't start, then neither does the rest of your day. Having a car that won't start is not much better than having no car at all! On this page, you'll find some of the most common reasons your vehicle might not start like it should.

Possible Reasons your Subaru Starter System is Not Working

When you go to turn the key in your vehicle, you're not going to get the engine to turn over if the battery is dead. We'll be able to charge your battery up, or replace it if the battery is just too old to hold a charge anymore. Your starter issue could also be caused by blown fuses, a failed relay or a bad starter solenoid - these are the electrical components that help start your vehicle.

On most modern cars, an anti-theft immobilizer makes it harder for would-be car thieves to make off with your ride. However, it also means that, if the key verification system stops working, you won't be able to start your car even with the correct key. A repair to your anti-theft immobilizer will have your car starting as good as new.

Finally, if the starter itself has worn out, it'll need to be replaced. Starters can last for a decade or more on a modern car, but eventually, the stresses of starting your engine over and over again can cause wear. The starter gear could break, or the motor inside could simply burn out.

These are just a few of the most common reasons your vehicle might not start. We'll check for all of these and more when you visit. That's why we hope you'll visit the Carter Subaru Ballard service department, so we can look at your car. Whether it needs to be towed to our service center or limps in under its own power, a starting issue can be tricky to track down - but not for our factory-trained service experts. They'll be able to get your Subaru starting up like new again.
