When the key is turned in your car’s ignition, a circuit is completed in the ignition switch. This connection provides power to the starter relay of your car. Your car will then switch to an “On” position from its “Off” position.
The relay will pass on the power to the starter solenoid from the battery of the car. In fact, the starter motor will engage to start your car. If the starter motor fails, your car will not start. Even though the interior accessories might work well, the starter will fail even if you turn the key.
When the motor fails while turning the key, it stays engaged with the transmission flywheel. This can damage the flywheel, starter, the relay, and the circuit of your car. If the starter relay fails or if it doesn’t work properly, you have to get a qualified and experienced auto mechanic to inspect the part.
You may have to replace the relay if the problem persists. A starter relay usually lasts the lifetime of your car. It doesn’t require servicing most of the time. Replacing the relay is the best option if you have a faulty starter relay in your car.
If your car won’t start, the motor stays engaged or the engine turns over intermittently and starts, there might be a problem with the starter relay in your car. This is the best time to get your car inspected by a qualified and experienced auto mechanic.
In conclusion, a working starter relay is mandatory for the proper operation of your car. Your car will not start if the relay fails. This is where you need to get it inspected by a qualified and experienced auto mechanic. You may have to replace the relay before starting your vehicle again.
