The starter motor for an internal combustion engine is an electric motor responsible for kicking your vehicle’s engine into motion. It’s the part of the car that you hear first when you turn the key in the ignition and if it’s not working properly then your car may not be able to start at all. The starter motor is connected to the flywheel, or flex plate, and is responsible for turning it. When you turn the key in the ignition to start your vehicle, the starter solenoid that is mounted to the starter triggers the starter’s operation. There is a little gear that engages the flex plate, which in turn forces the engine to rotate. That’s the end of the starter motor’s part of your vehicle operation. Once the engine is fully powered and turning then the starter motor is disengaged.

All of our partnered electricians have access to quality parts and spares for a wide range of makes and models, ensuring that any parts of consumables used in the starter motor replacement or service they undertake for you are the highest possible quality. If a starter motor replacement needs to be done for your vehicle then our electrician will first disconnect the battery in order to reduce the chance of accidental electric shock. They will then hoist your car up to ensure they have complete and unhindered access to what they need. The starter motor wiring is then disconnected, and the starter is then removed from its location where the engine and the transmission join. Once the new starter motor has been fitted, the mounting bolts are then tightened to the specific torque required. All wiring is refitted, and the car is returned to the ground. Once the battery has been reconnected, the ignition system will be tested to ensure that the new starter motor is working.
