While the starter in your Audi vehicle can be called a self-starter, cranking motor, or self-starter, there's no confusion when it comes to what it does. Put simply, they use a dedicated motor and starter relay to deliver the power your engine needs in order to start.
How Starters Work
It all begins with you turning the key in the ignition cylinder. Of course, newer models may be equipped with a "Start" button instead. Whatever you do to initiate the process, the process remains the same. A solenoid draws electricity from the battery and sends it to the starter. That causes the starter gear to push forward, connect to engine flywheel's gear teeth, and rotate those teeth. That kicks your engine into action.
However, even the best starter can go bad over time and repeated use. Signs of trouble include:
- Your engine refuses to crank
- There's a clicking noise when you try to start your engine
- The dash lights come on but the engine won't turn over
