A Word About Repairing Your OEM Denso Dodge Diesel Starter

We only carry original DENSO starters. The best and strongest there is. The same starter Dodge supplied with your Cummins engine when it was new. We do not carry Imported aftermarket copies of the Denso because our experience shows they do not perform anywhere near as well or as long as the OEM Denso starters. Frankly, we can't afford to sell our customers something they are going to have problems with. Yes, OEM Denso starters are more expensive than cheap autoparts store copies but the first time your truck won't start and it's not convienient to have a tow truck come and get you, you will be wanting a true DENSO. Don't let just anyone tell you their starter is a Denso or as good as a Denso. Even it it says it's Mean, it's just an aftermarket copy of the Denso starter. Always look for either a DENSO, Cummins or Chrysler label.

The OEM Denso starters on the Dodge Cummins Diesel almost always go for at least 100,000 miles, sometimes as long as 300,000, without a single problem. And then when they do fail for the first time, invariably it's just plain worn out solenoid contacts. This causes the starter to click but not crank, or worse yet, stick on and keep cranking. This also can cause the "20 AMP START SOL"  fuse to blow. Easy to replace, the contacts are very inexpensive. Our oversize contacts last even longer than the originals.

The next thing to fail will be worn out brushes, causing slow cranking. You can kill two birds with one stone by doing the brushes at the same time. Check out our rebuild kits below. Many of our customers see over 200,000 miles of trouble free starting after doing the contacts and brushes.

Our Rebuild Kits come in 3 stages. We recommend the #2.EASY kit if your starter has between 100,000 and 200,000 miles.
