Making Sure Your Ignition is Working

Most drivers think that when their car fails to start it is because their battery is dead. However, in some cases it could be due to the starter not working. One of the ways you can tell the difference between the battery and starter causing ignition problems is if there is a grinding noise. This could mean that the starter drive gear is not working.

Another way that you could know that the ignition needs repair is if you see any smoke. Smoke can mean that the starter is shorted, which could cause too much power to be drawn to the shorter. Do not attempt to drive your car any further if you see smoke because it could permanently damage the engine.
