If the starter is bad no. Check battery, starter and solenoid to be sure which is bad.
Probably a bad starter solenoid.
If you can jump start the engine your starter is good.
A car failing to start is an indicator that a starter is going bad. A bad starter can also cause a screeching sound when the key is turned.
1. bad starter selenoid 2. blown fuse in the circuit 3. bad ground at the starter (not likely, but possible) Start at the starter, with a test light, and work your way back through the curcuit until you find power. That's where the problem will be. If the starter has no power move to the selenoid. If the selenoid had no power in the switch circuit move to the fuse. If the selenoid has no power on the battery side move to the fusable link. Keep working your way to the ignition switch.
Bad starter solenoid. Bad brushes more likely (worn out)
No. A bad starter would cause the car not to start.
Loose connection? Bad starter (flat spot)? Bad starter solenoid?
Could be the battery is drained or bad. Could be battery connections at battery and or starter are dirty and or loose. Could be starter solenoid is bad. Could be starter is bad.
Bad starter, bad flywheel/ring gear, bad starter/flywheel alignment.
