If the engine will not crank over, the most common problem is the starter. These will tend to go out at about 100,00-125,000 miles. Sometimes it is only the starter solenoid, but often the complete starter (including solenoid) needs to be replaced.

    Intermittent starting. Vehicle would take several times to crank, no clicking sounds at all. Battery, ignition and alternator all okay. Replaced starter because of corroded contacts and corrosion on/in starter.
