Starters generally come either remanufactured or new. They go by many names, too, such as starter motor, cranking motor, or even self-starter. Whichever your Hyundai has, how it works is uncomplicated: all a starter does is "crank" (rotate) your engine using a dedicated motor and relay. This is what gets it running. A remote starter accomplishes this with a smart key fob, at the push of a button.
When a starter won't turn an engine, however -- or won't do it consistently -- it's often because it's going out or it has gone bad. Luckily, the common causes of starter failure are easy to spot. They include:
- Loose wiring
- Dirty terminals
- A rusted battery
- Damaged starter parts
Better yet, the signs of starter problems are just as easily recognizable:
- When you try to start your engine, does it work? If it doesn't, but your dash lights up anyway, that's one symptom.
- If it does, but only in some gears or drive modes and not others, that's another.
- When you try to jump-start your car, does it start afterward? If it doesn't, that's yet another.
- Is your starter smoking? Upon inspection, did you find your starter covered in oil? If so (to one or both), more than likely, you've got starter issues.
The best solution? Install another genuine Hyundai starter.
