Honda Odyssey 1996 200k wont start, engine doesnt turn over

Take a hammer or wrench or siimilar and bang on the outside of the starter motor - one solid thump should do it. If the car subsequently starts then the problem is that the bushings are worn in your starter motor. By thumping it you jiggle the bushings just enough to make electrical contact and get the car started. When it works it is like a miracle cure. However the problem will recur and get worse so you'll need to go to the mechanic to get your starter motor fixed.

Starter Motor just clicks when turning key on occasion. Must cycle key numerous times to engage starter. Is it the starter motor?

assuming the battery is good.
It will probably be the solenoid on the starter, you will have to remove the starter and repair or replace.
If it is a continuing problem it can help to fit another relay opperating off the start wire , the relay is fed from the battery, and then feeds the solenoid, this way maximum voltage is applied to the solenoid and it will work better

Intermittent starter problem, sometimes turns, sometimes not. changed battery, tested bad, starter worked twice, stopped turning. changed starter, still wont turn.

Many European cars have relays that trigger the starter,maybe yours is bad? New battery and new starter? Need to check battery connections to vehicle especially ground wire to engine block. Starter face and flywheel housing have to be clean for good ground connection.
When it won't start do you try key numerous times? Sometimes (rarely) bad keyswitch.

2001 VW bug wont start. Electrical?

sounds to me like you have a dodgy starter motor, gently tap the starter with a hammer, while someone turns the key, if it starts then your loenoid in the starter motor is on its way out....
