A Volvo 960 starter is the part of the engine that moves the internal components to ignite the fuel and start the car's engine. It is an electric motor that receives power from the car's battery and uses a gear to turn the engine's flywheel, initiating the combustion process.
Signs of a Faulty Volvo 960 Starter
Here are some common signs of a faulty Volvo 960 starter:
- Engine cranks slowly or not at all: A faulty starter would not be able to crank the engine or may do so at a slower than normal speed.
- Clicking sound when turning the key: If you hear a clicking sound when attempting to start the engine, it may indicate a faulty starter solenoid.
- Grinding noise: A grinding noise when starting the engine could indicate that the starter gear is worn out.
- Frequent jump-starts: If you find yourself needing to jump-start your car frequently, it could be a sign of a failing starter.
- Dashboard lights flicker: When the starter is failing, the electrical system may not receive enough power, causing dashboard lights to flicker.
- Smoke or burning smell: A burning smell or smoke coming from the starter could indicate an overheated or burnt-out starter motor.
If you suspect that your Volvo 960 has a faulty starter, it's essential to have it inspected and repaired by a qualified mechanic as soon as possible to avoid further damage to the vehicle.
Steps for Testing Your Volvo 960 Starter
Here are the steps to test a Volvo 960 starter:
- Remove the old starter: Before you can test the starter, you need to remove it from the vehicle. Disconnect the battery and locate the starter. Depending on your level of expertise, you may need to consult a repair manual before proceeding.
- Check the connections: Once you have removed the starter, inspect its electrical connections. Look for any signs of corrosion or damage. Clean any dirty or corroded connections with a wire brush.
- Check the solenoid: The solenoid is a critical component of the starter, responsible for engaging the starter motor. Use a multimeter to test the resistance of the solenoid. It should read between 4-5 ohms.
- Test the starter motor: Connect the starter to a battery charger or jump box. Use jumper cables to connect the positive lead of the battery charger to the positive terminal on the starter. Then connect the negative lead of the charger to the starter housing. Finally, use a jumper cable to briefly touch the positive lead of the starter to the positive post on the battery. If the starter spins freely, it's likely working correctly.
- Inspect the gears: While the starter is out, check its flywheel gear. It should be clean and free of damage. Likewise, inspect the starter's pinion gear. Look for signs of wear, such as chipped or missing teeth.
- Reinstall the starter: After you have tested and inspected the starter, reinstall it in the vehicle. Reconnect the battery and test the starter by turning the ignition key.
