Prestolite Electric announced it extended the Prestolite Power Promise warranty to its PowerPro Extreme 5 unit, offering extended coverage of up to two years and unlimited mileage to the truck starter motor.

Launched in 2019, the Prestolite Power Promise warranty also includes Leece-Neville IdlePro and IdlePro Extreme alternators, according to the Novi, Mich.-based company. Inside each PowerPro Extreme 5 starter is a completely sealed noseless design that protects against dust, oil and other contaminants plus an electrical soft-start relay that allows the pinion to properly engage the ring gear prior to crank.

The warranty covers manufacturing defects, component failure, electrical or mechanical overrun/overload, re- and mis-engagement, pinion milling and teeth damage, failure due to excess corrosion, rust, oil, dirt/debris, water and heat; and other common warranty concerns.

Prestolite is a division of China-based Broad-Ocean Motors. — Transport Topics
