Ano ba symptoms na pasira na starter?
Last saturday kasi, I couldn't start my car (97 Accord VTi-S, AT). Ni walang redondo, just a click. I thought na na-activate yung starter kill ng Clifford alarm, so I disconnected the batteries for 2 hours. Nasa "P" din yung AT. Pero when I reconnected it, ayaw pa rin mag-start, just a click. I checked the fuses (starter and ignition), OK naman. I put the alarm on valet mode, disconnected the battery, then reconnected again, pero ayaw pa rin.
So I called an auto electrician, yung may alam sa mga alarms. He totally disconnected the alarm, tapos pag-pihit nya, on the 2nd try, start agad. Sabi nya starter daw, baka upod na carbon brush or marumi na contact. Eh singil nya sa labor, 1k (excluding parts), asap pa daw palitan.
Pero, di ako convinced, kasi, I never had problems starting the car before. Also, nagloloko na talaga yung Clifford, ilang beses (4x) na ngang pinatay nya yung electrical connections (as in patay), despite the battery being connected, when I started the engine. Each time, I had to disconnect/ reconnect. Perwisyo talaga, kaya I had the alarm disconnected na.
So what do you think, starter or alarm?
