Prestolite Electric, a global manufacturer and supplier of starters and alternators for the OE and aftermarket, has 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 popular truck starter motor

Through the Prestolite Power Promise, every qualifying PowerPro Extreme 5 starter motor will now include a more robust warranty offering of coverage concerns versus a standard warranty. Launched in 2019, the Prestolite Power Promise warranty also includes Leece-Neville IdlePro and IdlePro Extreme alternators. 

“Premium product quality, industry-leading engineering, top-quality manufacturing and a customer-first approach have helped us deliver a best-in-class program to our customers,” said Jonathan Smith, assistant director of aftermarket sales and marketing, Prestolite. “We’re excited to continue adding products to our Prestolite Power Promise warranty! Each and every PowerPro Extreme 5 starter motor was engineered to provide consistent, reliable starting performance under the most demanding conditions – and now it’s backed by the Prestolite Power Promise.” 

The PowerPro Extreme 5 starter includes several design features to deliver performance in a common start-stop environment and a space-saving design, according to Prestolite. Inside each PowerPro Extreme 5 starter is a completely sealed nose-less 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 Prestolite Power Promise 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 many additional common warranty concerns.

The Prestolite Power Promise is available with the purchase of qualifying Leece-Neville PowerPro Extreme 5 starters, IdlePro alternators, and IdlePro Extreme alternators. For restrictions, please contact your Prestolite Electric/Leece-Neville sales representative.
