Your Kia Engine Will Not Turn Over But Battery Good?

When it comes to Kia starter issues, it usually takes a full diagnostic. From battery to ignition to starter, there are multiple components in the ignition system, so finding the correct issue 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.” *

Kia Starter Issues – FAQ

Understanding all the finer points about vehicle starter replacement and problems is not for everyone. Nevertheless, here are some of the frequently asked questions we get when your Kia engine won’t turn over but the battery is good.

What’s the Cost For a Car Starter Repair?

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

What Does a Bad Starter Sound Like?

Generally, a broken car starter can and will make a variety of noises. These often range from obvious loud clicking sounds to a high-pitched screech, or an unwelcome grinding noise to irregular whirring. Even when the battery is good, you might turn the key in the ignition and hear nothing at all. This is often because of the multiple components of the car starter system.

How to Tell if Your Kia Car Starter is Bad?

When testing to see if your Kia car starter is bad, every mechanic, factory-certified or not, should always begin by determining if the battery is dead. Typically speaking, batteries need replacement far more often than your vehicle engine starter. This is easily done with a multimeter or a load tester. If it’s working properly, it’s still always 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 area dealer service center. Short of actually removing and testing the faulty starter, a diagnostic most often involves a process of elimination.

It was a good experience. We had to wait for our vehicle while it was getting services. They finished in about 30 minutes. The service tech was running a little late because of flooding. They still got it done in about 30 minutes. I know the coronavirus has changed things. There were no complimentary food items, but they did have a vending machine.

I worked with Esteban Alanis who was very knowledgeable and understood I needed to work within a certain budget. He went the extra mile (no pun intended!) and was even willing to talk to a family member of mine on the phone who had some extra questions. I felt comfortable trusting him and overall had a great experience with Kia of South Austin.
