Works Great at a Great Price

It's a starter. Install it, turn the key, it cranks the motor. That's all I expect from it, and that's exactly what I'm getting.

Purchased this in Aug 2013 when starter died in Tallahassee Fl. I taking my daughter to college. I did not have my tools so I paid $60 to get it towed to a local shop and paid $80 to install the starter I purchased from advance. It is now may 22, 2014 and the starter is not workly properly. Several times when my wife tries to start the car it does nothing so I have to tap it with a hammer and it starts. It is not an easy job to install so regardless of the lifetime warranty it is not a good deal if you have to replace it every 7 months. My suggestion is to find a better quality oem rebuilt starter.

      Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

      Used to replace my 2005 Honda Accord EX v6 starter. Worked great an absolute breeze to replace, less than 45 minutes in total. Reason for 4 stars and not 5 was where the battery terminal connects to the starter, was off by 180 degrees. I did not need to modify or change anything, its just the power cable had to be run slightly differently and therefore could not reattach the cable to the OEM hold down points, nothing a zip tie couldn't fix though.

      Comments about CARQUEST Starter - Remanufactured:

      Perfect replacement for 2006 Accord V6. HUNDREDS less than Honda part.

      VERY easy to swap out. To replace, disconnect and remove battery, then plastic tray, which will leave a metal "shelf" for the battery. There are 4 bolts visible on top that need to conpletely come out. There are are also two bolts underneath the shelf, but these only need to be backed out 1/4" as the shelf just slides onto these; these bolts do not go through the shelf. Get the shelf out then its a piece of cake to remove the starter with two bolts and a couple connections.

                      Old starter was completely dead. The owner was beating it with a hammer to get it to crank.... but that finally quit working so had to replace it. This one works great

                          15 months and roughly 10,000 miles after purchase it engaged and would not disengage (just kept trying to star the car), shortly thereafter leading it to burn itself out. I had to replace it in a parking lot on the fly. I did get it replaced on warranty with no hassles, but I won't be purchasing another one of these in the future. I suppose it is worth the price to buy something higher quality when that specific part has the ability to strand you with no previous warning.

                              Hi Dr. Feinstone, glad to assist you! This part comes with limited lifetime warranty. The lifetime warranty part can be refunded for cash/credit within the 90 days time frame. After that time expires, it can only be exchanged for a new item. So the warranty is valid the life of the part as long as the customer owns the vehicle.

                              When your engine won't turn over when you turn the ignition on, it may be because
                              1. The battery is too weak,
                              2. There is a problem with the battery cable and insufficient electricity is delivered by the battery cables to the starter and other devices,
                              3. The solenoid is bad and won't turn on the starter motor or push the pinion out.
                              4. The starter motor is burned out.

                              So if you test the battery, electrical connections are good and not corroded or loose, and everything else electrical works, then you are left with the solenoid and the attached motor. Most likely the motor is burned out or the solenoid is not functioning properly so you can't turn over your engine.

                              Once you have eliminated the electrical system/battery, then you have to start dismantling and getting the old starter/solenoid out. You can also test this with jumper cables to see if it works /spins the pinion.

                              First obvious result is that the engine doesn't start. You check the battery and if it is 12.4 to 12.6 it is usually the starter. Another way to tell is if you listen carefully there is only one click when the engine doesn't start. If it is several clicks it's usually because of a weak battery.
