Does Nothing Happen Sometimes When You Turn the Ignition?

A starter is an electric motor that cranks a car's engine when the ignition switch is turned. When your car's starter fails, it'll leave you stranded until you can get it replaced. There are warning signs of a failing starter that you can watch for, though.

One warning sign that your car's starter may be at the end of its life is when it fails to engage when you turn the ignition. When the solenoid that transmits electricity to the starter begins to fail, it causes the starter to lose power. This might be intermittent before it fails completely.

If you find you have to try more than once to start your car, bring it to our Kia service center in Perry, Georgia for an inspection. At Jeff Smith Kia, our certified automotive technicians can make any repairs that may be needed.
