If the car will not start, the most likely problem is worn or corroded solenoid contacts in the starter. Usually, these parts can be replaced without purchasing a new starter.

My car wouldn't start and I heard a clicking sound. I waited about 20 minutes and then it started just fine. I've had this same situation twice so I think it's time to talk to my mechanic.
same problem 98 camry v6
Starter quit. Engine light said solenoid issue.
starter change out fixed it
