    One the occasions when it does not turn over, does the engine crank?

    Also, at this time, when the key is in the ON position, are the ignition lights, etc on?

I assume the engine is cranking, but just not starting.

With the ignition ON, does the fuel pump run in this condition? If not, look for electrical issues with the fuel pump. If it does run, check to be sure you have proper fuel pressure.

if what you say say is true-prove the click with a good power source like another vehicle attached with jumper cables-then bite the bullet and replace the starter motor

Cold start problem

Have you checked starter relay? That loud click could be relay jamming.

Assuming you replaced the solenoid with the starter, it may be the relay. If the relay is not making a good connection, it might have trouble throwing the solenoid. The relay should be in the relay box under the hood. You can break the relay open and watch it work while someone turns the key to verify the problem.

Battery light came on had problems starting now wont start at all but radio and all the lights work is it the battery or something else

more than likely it sounds like your starter is either messed up or your relay to the starter has went out i would start by checking your relays and fuses thats the cheapest way then if that doesn't do the job then you might have to pull the starter and have it checked.

2002 Chrysler Town and Country won't start.

Clean your battery terminal contact surfaces and verify actual battery voltage (should be at least 12v) Also check that both battery cables are secure and clean on other end. Then, check starter relay if problem continues.

Intermittent fuel-flow problem

Been having the same problem. Ended up replacing the grey wire from the fuel pump relay to the fuel pump. The grey wire leaves the relay and then branches in two. One wire goes to the ECM to tell it the fuel pump has power. The other goes to the fuel pump.

We have a 2003 Saturn Ion that has intermittent starting problems. The problem occurs at all temperatures. If we wait 5-15 minutes it will start. Have replaced the battery and starter My girlfriends...

Take the car in, and have the fuel pump checked, and maybe the alternater. Something in there is going out. Could even be lose battery cables, or a lose connection. Either way, you should have it checked before you get stuck somewhere.
