Q: Aftermarket security starter causing starting issues.

asked by on

Car will not start. I initially thought it was the starter and the mechanic suggested removing the aftermarket security starter, which we did. The car still will not start.

It is possible that you may have a bad starter or ignition switch. I would ask for help from one of the experienced mechanics at YourMechanic to properly diagnose your starting system and narrow down exactly what the problem is. With their help your car will be up and running in no time.
