This is caused by the contacts being burned in the starter solenoid, just the solenoid contacts can be replaced, you have to pull the starter to do this, the new contacts are available from Ohiomotor.com

Check if you have power at the starter from the ignition key
Try give direct power to the starter, if still not starts, you have a bad starter

I would check your battery. I would also look for loose grounds. The clicking you hear is your fuel pump turning on. I would check your battery voltage and, have the battery load tested.

if you turn headlights on and turn key to start do you hear clicking? if so starter is possibly bad,lets trouble shoot your problem.suggest you check the fuses under hood in black box,make sure those are good. when you turn the key, you should hear at least a click or else the starter is not drawing current.try turning the headlights on and at same time turn the key and try to start, if lights go dim the starter is drawing current, does it click? if so then bad starter. if no noise at all,,still could be a bad starter.suggest that you remove the starter and have it checked out.also make sure the car is in park for sure before you do any of this. hope this helps!!

Rx 300 randomly will not start


Do you hear a faint single click noise when you turn the key to crank position?

When the problem occurs try to keep cycling the key to the crank position at least 10 times to help isolate the problem. If it has any clicking or reaction to the cycling of the key it may be worn contacts inside the starter.

Vehicle No Start - no turnover (lights, radio work) then it starts


It may be your harmonic balance. do you hear a rattling noise when it runs?
If not it could be a bad or going bad starter.
