Lexus Engine Not Turning Over But Has Power?

When dealing with Lexus starter challenges, it usually requires a full engine diagnostic. From ignition to battery to starter, there are multiple components to an ignition system, so finding the correct cause of failure is absolutely of the utmost importance.

What is a Car or Truck Engine Starter?

“A car starter is a powerful electric motor that cranks your engine in order to start your car. The starting system consists of the motor itself, and the attached solenoid. The solenoid is what takes battery power and delivers it to the starter motor. It also pushes the starter gear forward, allowing it to mesh with the gear teeth of the engine’s flywheel. A high current is needed to start your car, so your battery has to have enough “juice” to enable the car starting system to work properly. Most of the time, when a car won’t start and the battery is fully charged, the starter motor is to blame. Starters do wear out.” *

Car Starter Problems – FAQ

Understanding the specific points of car starter issues and replacement is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the most frequently asked questions we get when a car or truck engine is not turning over but still has power.

What’s the Cost For a Car Starter Repair?

As car starter systems often vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, there is no set price for every Lexus or service center. When you call, however, please be sure to have your year, make, model, and trim level on hand. Even so, it will need a diagnostic to provide a price estimate.

What Does a Faulty Car Starter Sound Like?

A bad car starter can and will make a variety of sounds. These often range from obvious loud clicking noises to high-pitch screeching, or an unwelcome grinding noise to intermittent whirring. Even when the battery is fully powered, one might turn the key in the ignition and hear no sound at all. This is normally because of the miriad components of the engine starter system.

How to Tell if Your Lexus Car Starter is Bad?

When testing to see if the Lexus car starter is bad, every mechanic, factory-trained or not, should first begin with a battery test. Typically speaking, batteries need to be replaced far more often than your car engine starter. This is easy with a battery multimeter or a battery load tester. If it’s properly working, it’s still possible that the issue is the battery connections, relay fuse, computer, theft immobilizer, or neutral safety switch. As always, your go-to source is your Houston dealer service center. Short of actually removing the starter, a diagnosis most often involves a process of elimination.
