Unlee the starter came with a lifetime warranty and was reconditioned from a reputable repair shop, then you may need a starter so don't count it out.
You will want to inspect the starter, bench test it. Bench testing the starter will bypass the cars starting system. This is one step that will help narrow things down. You will need to be able to get underneath the car SAFELY.
The ignition switch, the starter relay, as much related wiring that can be seen needs to be inspected for breaks, corrosion, over-heating, loose contacts or connections.
A test light can be very helpful in testing wiring and checking the starter (trigger wire). Also the test-light can be used to test for good grounds. The starter can fail to work for a variety of reasons so check everything.

Have to turn the starter many times to get car to turn over and start


Probably the solenoid on the starter. Is that what is clicking? Listen for it, if clicking at the starter, probably a bad starter solenoid. Some cars, not all, have a starter relay in the starting circuit. If clicking at a relay block and not from starter, check for a start relay.

As with any no start issue, you will need to check for spark and fuel pressure when it won't start to know how to proceed.

I have a 2006 is250 lexus push button start and it only starts sometimes....radio, lights, nav everything works but it won't crank....takes 3-4 times before it cranks and it doesn't happen eve


The first thing you want to check for is the brake signal,without this signal it will not crank,this is the easy one make sure you get brake light,the second is to have the starter tested by a direct method,this gives the indication of the health of the starter

these have a safety system so the shifter won`t go into any gear unless the brake is pushed(indicating someone sitting in the drivers seat),if the brake lights aren`t working this indicates that the fuse that operates the shift lock solenoid and brake lights is not working and needs replacing.check the fuses and replace the fuse and things will probably return to normal.

If you hear relays clicking sometimes and the jeep won't start, at those times, is the check engine light illuminated on the dash, or not? If no check engine light is on the dash, at times when the jeep won't start, your ecu is in need of repairs. The ecu sends power to the ignition and fuel relays and when the ecu starts to malfunction, the relays usually start clicking.
