Q: Possible starter replacement, not sure.

asked by on

My truck does not start. I think it might be the starter.

If your truck won’t start because of a faulty starter you will hear no sounds when turning your key or maybe just a click sound. All the lights and other electric functions of your vehicle should still perform properly. If you have these symptoms the starter is likely what is causing your no start condition. I would recommend having your vehicle first inspected by a technician and if the starter is found to be faulty they will be able to replace it for your conveniently at your location.
