The starter itself might need cleaning of old dirt, grease, oil, or crud inside, but I think your starter solenoid is failing. The contacts in it are probably pitted and failing. Those starters are pretty bullet-proof. Don't exchange it for a cheap alternative. Just replace or repair the solenoid.
this could be many problems. 1 battery 2 the starter if the engine clicks when u turn the key u have a dead battery. if it does not click and still does not turn over even after u tried to charge the battery then u have a bad starter.
If you are getting a clicking sound, then the starter is not getting enough power. There are three major things that must work in order for a starter to work. A good power source with good connections, a good starter solenoid (puts direct battery power to the starter motor when you turn the ignition to start), and a good starter motor. Usually a clicking sound indicates a fault in the first two items mentioned. If it were a blown fuse, you would get absolutely nothing when you turned the ignition key.
There are a number of things that could cause that. Try turning the key to the on position and crossing the starter terminals with a screwdriver. If it starts you have a bad ignition. If it still just clicks your starter has seized up or your battery might be lacking the charge to do the job. Hope these help you.
Anti-Deterrent ECU: This is also possibility especially someone else drive your car. This is very common if you lend your car to someone. The symptom of this condition is "No noise or sound at all" when ignition key is turned. If this is faulty, the symptom will be the complete ignition kill. Therefore, you will not heard and clicking sound or engine turning at all. If this is the problem, you can easily reset the Anti-Deterrent by using your key. Stand out side of the car and close all doors. Insert the key into the driver side door and turn the key to clockwise and counterclockwise for three four cycles. Basically, you are lock, unlock for 4 times and this procedure will reset the anti-deterrent ECU. If this happen to you, its quite scary at first, but the solution is very simple.
