Hundreds of drivers unable to start their cars on winter mornings due to common issues

Starter Motor

The RAC warns the most common sign of a starter motor failure id a clicking sound when turning the ignition key,

This is likely to be the issue if the lights and in-car electrics are working fine but the car refuses to start.

If the starter motor has failed, jump-starting the car will not solve the problem.

Experts say only the support of trained mechanics is the only hope of completely fixing the issue.

The RAC confirms starter motors are “not hugely expensive” with repairs taking around half a day to finalise.

Car door frozen

On frosty mornings, road users may be unable to access their car at all decaying journeys.

The RAC urges drivers to use a silicone-based furniture polish on the rubber seals of the vehicles which will prevent doors from getting stuck when it freezes over.

If the locks are completely frozen, they urge drivers to warm-up their key.

Motorists could also try and unfreeze the lock by using anti-freeze or by spraying WD40.
