An ignition is an important component of your vehicle. When your vehicle isn't starting, you may think it is a dead battery. However, it could be a sign that your ignition needs to be serviced. Here are some signs to look for to help determine if your car problems are stemming from your ignition.

If you try to start your engine and hear a whining sound, the ignition may not be engaging with the flywheel. It is important to seek immediate service because it could mean that you need a starter replacement. In addition, if you hear a grinding noise when you try to start the engine, the starter drive gear may be worn. Additional symptoms of a bad ignition include smoke coming from the engine and a starter that is soaked with oil.

If you need to have your starter serviced, contact our service center at Volvo Cars Edinburg in Edinburg, TX.
