If the vehicle will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter, which tend to fail at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid contacts, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.
Average mileage: 105,000 (52,000–220,000)

Rav4 won't start, no problem with battery as lights, etc will work, and clicking noise while attempting to turn-over. Hasn't been diagnosed but certain it's the starter.
My 2012 rav4 has been hesitant to start about 60% of the time. When it does start it takes at least 2 attempts for it to turn over and start. What should I do?
Tried jumping the battery but even though lights come on the car still won't start.
