did you hook up a volt meter to battery? what was the reading 12.79 volts or less? and how about load testing battery for stability on cranking amps.

What you have is a VERY common problem. Your starter solenoid contacts are worn out. To rectify this, you have 2 options: Remove the starter and replace the burnt contacts (the are located under a metal plate that has 3 small bolts holding it to the starter; replace the plunger and the 2 copper coloured contacts) OR reeplace the starter. The clicking noise that you hear is the plunger hitting one contact, but the current from the battery is not passing thru the plunger to the other contact that leads into the windings of the starter. No contact = no crank.

There are various things this could be ie inhibitor switch on auto box relays wiring fault or ignition barrel problems try putting the starting the car in N instead of P and wiggle gear lever about other option bypass everything and connect a live feed straight to starter motor cranking wire which is located on the starter motor, if car still wont turn over tap starter motor with a hammer, if hammer trick works then you need a new starter

It may be the starter motor contacts which are worn. I have done this twice (on 2 different estima's myself. The starter will not turn or not properly. New contacts for these Denso starters are available on ebay from nipponnev for about £10 delivered and take about 1 hour to fit. No need to buy another starter. Hope this helps. Regards, Paul
