1997 Ford Ranger 2.3L Hard Start

I love my Rangers, and it sounds like you need a new starter drive, better know as the bendix. It is cheaper to buy a new starter. As far as the door locks, I would get the starter fixed first and the door lock problem may go away. sounds like the starter is dragging the power down and could cause a number of strange thing to happen. Hope I have help you solve your problem. I think It will.

2005 chrysler 300 key turns and it just clicks or does not do nothing

If you turn key to "RUN" position and your getting power to all accessories such as windows, radio wiper etc. then your most likely looking at a starter motor issue. When turning the key to "START" and you hear a slight click but keep turning it several times and it finally cranks over then the contacts inside the starter are not making good contact so as you continue to turn to the start position, it turns slightly until it gets good contact and finally spins the starter.
If your mechanically inclined you could take it apart and clean the contacts on the armature otherwise just cheaper to replace it.

How do I change the starter on a 99 avalon

Could be your starter, sounds like your starter soloinoid(pulls starter gear into flywheel) might be defective. First it will not pull gear in, then if it sticks in your car could keep starting even if the key was turned off .
without looking at the car I could'nt say how hard it would be to change. It has been my observation that newer cars are much more difficult to change

Starting difficulty. When I turn the ignition

Check your battery terminals and the hot lead on the starter make sure they are clean and tight. If they are you are most likely will need a starter.

Takeing about 5 turns on the key before starter

If you hear a "clicking" sound when you hit the key, it is likely the starter solenoid. Sometimes they stick, especially if its cold where you live. Hitting the key numerous times will jar it enough so the car will start, sometimes. You'll likely need to replace the starter if this is the case.

Intermitent start

A little clarification: the starter relay and starter solenoid are the same piece of equipment -- just different names for the same device.
