3 Reasons Your Car Won't Start, Bremerton, Washington

Nothing is more frustrating than trying to start your car, only for it to fail. While the underlying cause could be any number of things, the automotive specialists at ABRA Auto have curated a list of the most common reasons why your car may not be starting.

Your battery is dead.

If your engine won’t turn over when you try cranking it, your battery is likely dead. ABRA Auto recommends giving your vehicle a jump, but if that doesn’t work, then you may need a new battery.

Your alternator is shot.

If you know your battery should be in working condition, then your alternator may be the problem as its job is to recharge your recharge your battery. Dim headlights and dashboard lights are also good indicators that your alternator is dying.

You’re out of gas.

While this probably seems like the most obvious reason, several people tend to overlook this factor. If this is the case, then luckily it’s an easy (and cost-effective) fix.

What Else Could it Be?

If you’ve ruled out all of the previous options, then it may be time to visit your local ABRA Auto store for a complete inspection. To view a full list of their other products and services, visit their online shop today.
