Q: Starter broken

The car won't start. The battery is okay. I think the starter might not work.

If your car cranks you can check off battery and starter, they work. If on the other hand the starter clicks and wont turn the engine at all, I would suspect either starter or battery until they can be verified to be working as intended. I would recommend having a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to do a complete diagnosis to find the problem. There have been a few instances where I've looked at cars with bad starters that would kill batteries due to the amount of amps required to keep it going.

This is often times a sign of a short or a grounding issue. I would recommend checking the black negative battery cable that goes from the battery to the chassis of the car to be sure there is not a...

Q: Battery and alternator are good, yet there is a slow crank when trying to start the car. Battery saver mode is on.

Hello. Battery saver mode comes into play when the electrical system voltage is too low. This mode shuts off "non-essential" components like the AC compressor in order to "get you to a safe place" before the battery is dead. There...
