It's never fun when your vehicle won't start, and it always seems to happen when you're in a hurry to be some place. Oftentimes it's a dead battery, but sometimes it might be your starter that has gone bad. There are, however, a few signs that can alert you to potential starter problems.

One of the first signs that there is something wrong with your starter is if you hear a grinding noise. If you hear this noise, you will want to take care of it before you damage your flywheel. A second sign is if you hear a whining sound but the ignition won't fire. If you see or smell smoke, call a tow truck to take it to a service center immediately.

If you have any concerns about your ignition, come to the BMW service center at BMW of Birmingham, and we'll be happy to diagnose your problem and get your vehicle running again.
