Common Auto Services at Carlsen Subaru: Vehicle will not Start

Schedule a failure to start service at Carlsen Subaru

If you found this page in search of answers for why your Subaru won't start, we feel your pain. It inevitably happens to everyone, but nobody thinks about it until it happens. And there's no such thing as a convenient time for it. Here's what we recommend: Attempt to jump-start your vehicle using another car or a battery charger, if you're able, and see what happens. Whether it starts up with the help of a jump or not, your vehicle is in need of service so it'll start back up on its own. Get a jump if you can, then drive or get a tow to our service center. We'll be able to quickly diagnose your starting issue and use OEM parts direct from Subaru to fix it.

Why Won't My Subaru Start?

If your vehicle starts right up with the aid of a jump, then you may have a dead battery, a poor battery connection, or some other electrical issue. We have special tools to measure the life remaining in your battery and find your electrical problem if the battery itself is still good. If not, we stock quality batteries for use in your Subaru. If the jump start didn't do the trick, then your starting issue is likely to be mechanical in nature. We'll start by checking the starter, alternator, spark plugs and more until we find the issue and implement a quality fix.
