The average cost of a Mercedes Sprinter starter is between $167.99 and $452.99.
A Mercedes Sprinter starter is an electric motor and a gear assembly that is responsible for cranking the engine of a Mercedes Sprinter van. It is usually located on the engine block and is activated by turning the ignition key. When activated, the starter motor turns the engine over until it starts running on its own.
Signs of a Faulty Mercedes Sprinter Starter
Here are some of the most common signs of a faulty Mercedes Sprinter starter:
- Clicking noise: When you try to start your vehicle, you may hear a clicking noise from the engine compartment. This usually indicates that there is a problem with the starter solenoid or the starter motor.
- Grinding noise: If you hear a grinding noise when you turn the key, it could be a sign that the starter gear is damaged and not engaging properly with the flywheel.
- Engine cranks slowly: If the engine cranks slowly or takes longer than usual to start, it could be due to a weak battery or a faulty starter motor.
- No crank: If you turn the key and nothing happens, it could be a sign of a faulty starter relay or a dead battery.
- Smoke or burning smell: If you notice smoke or a burning smell coming from the engine compartment when you try to start your vehicle, it could indicate a problem with the starter motor or its wiring.
If you experience any of these signs, it's best to have your Mercedes Sprinter checked by a professional mechanic to determine the root cause of the problem.
Steps for Testing Your Mercedes Sprinter Starter
Here are the steps for testing a Mercedes Sprinter starter:
- Firstly, make sure that the battery is fully charged and check the condition of the battery cables and wiring.
- Next, locate the starter motor on your Mercedes Sprinter. It is usually found adjacent to the engine's flywheel or at one end of the engine block.
- Check the electrical connections at the starter. Ensure that they are cleaned and tight without any corrosion damage.
- Use a voltmeter to test if the battery is sending power to the starter motor. Place the negative lead of your voltmeter on the battery’s negative terminal and the positive lead on the starter’s positive terminal. It should read 12V or more.
- If the voltage reading is low or zero, you may have a problem with the battery, starter relay, ignition switch, or wiring in between.
- Try to engage the starter. Turn the key to the start position. Listen for a loud "click" sound. If it clicks but doesn't turn the engine over, you may have a bad starter solenoid.
- If there is no sound, you can test whether the starter motor has an internal problem by "bypassing" the solenoid manually. You will need two people to do this. One person should turn the key to the start position, while the second person uses a small wrench or screwdriver to bridge the two terminals on the starter solenoid.
- If the starter motor turns, it means that the solenoid is faulty, but the starter motor is good. If the starter motor still fails to turn, it means that the starter motor is faulty.
- Finally, take the starter to a specialist workshop for further testing or repair.
Note: It is recommended that you seek professional assistance if you are uncertain about performing any of these tests yourself. A professional mechanic can pinpoint the exact problem and provide a comprehensive solution.
