If this is your situation, you may be wondering, “What are the signs of a bad starter?” Of course, another thought is that the alternator may be starting to go bad--or maybe it’s the battery.

There are several symptoms that can indicate a bad starter—many of which can also be caused by the alternator or the battery. Your auto mechanic can run a simple test to determine the problem. Even though the starter system is meant to be durable--designed for repeated use under a variety of weather and road conditions, the wear and tear of daily use, extreme conditions, and poor maintenance can all create problems.

Has your vehicle seemed more sluggish than usual, possibly lacking power when passing a slower vehicle or when trying to go up a hill? Has a dashboard light come on and you don’t know why? With winter here to stay for a while, it would be smart to schedule a car tune up, which should include a diagnostic test.

What does a car diagnostic test tell you? Today's modern vehicles have computer processors, microchips and sensors so if you want to know what is really going on inside your vehicle, a diagnostics test can reveal problems associated with the engine and transmission, oil and gas tanks, exhaust system, and other systems.

With the use of a specialized computer linked to your vehicle, your mechanic can pinpoint exactly where a problem may exist, producing the fault codes which are stored in the vehicle’s memory system. It is possible to identify the cause of a problem quickly so that the right repair can be made before the problem gets bigger.
