STARTING CAR on 1995 Toyota Avalon

SOMETIMES WHEN I TRY TO START CAR IT CLICKS. THIS HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR A WHILE. I CAN GO WEEKS WITHOUT IT DOING IT. WHAT CAN IT BE BESIDES THE STARTER. COULD IT BE A FUSE?

It's not going to be a fuse. It may be the neutral safety switch, battery cable connections or another component in the starter circuit, like a relay. Problems that occur this infrequently are difficult to diagnose, so when it happens, try to document the conditions leading up to and during the time it wont start.

Mine would click also until I replaced the battery. The old battery was shorting the alarm and the alarm wouldn't let the car start.

My '96 Avalon was doing this as well and all it was was the battery cable. It was loose and when the car would be sitting for more than 5 hours; it would either not start or click like it was a dead battery. I replaced and tightened the terminals and it fixed the problem. Your problem isn't a fuse, it's either the battery, battery terminals, the starter, or the ignition.
