The starter doesn't engage on most mornings, no matter what the ambient temperature is. It just 'clicks'. After a few trys, it starts right up and usually works fine for the rest of my errands, or at most will click only once. This has been going on for months. I've replaced the starter/solenoid, checked the ign. switch, switched relays, checked interlock switch, and of course cleaned and tightened connections, to no avail. Please help.

Having the same issue. The only thing i've done is clean and tighten the battery cables. Did you ever resolve your problem?

Have you tried to jump the starter at the starter to see if it's a electrical problem or the starter. If it turns over like normal then it's a electrical problem.

I did, it just clicks. I guess I'll have to put a new starter in. Any recommendation?
Thanks!

I bought an actual OEM one off amazon and it works great. Been using it over a year.
