Question about 1996 Toyota 4Runner
Every other time I try to start there is a clicking sound under the hood, all lights are bright, this goes on 4 or 5 times and the car finally starts. The car has new battery. I've taken it to the dealer twice and they can't seem to duplicate the problem, therefore are unable to fix the problem.
Take the vehicle back to the dealer and have them remove the starter and to inspect the starter contacts. Burnt contacts will make the clicking noise that you hear, as the starter solenoid plunger is hitting one contact, but the current is not being transferred from the battery contact to the starter motor windings via the other contact. This is a very common problem. You have 2 options: replace the contacts, or replace the starter. I see this 10-12 time a month; I regularly just replace the contacts to save the customer the expense of buying a whole new starter.

My thought would be the starter motor have you had them look at that?
