Hi Kevin,
Yes it clicks. No warning lights. When 'warm' it tries to turn over, sometimes just managing to. Then starts and runs fine. Btw just changed battery without success.

Hi im kevin it sounds like you have a failing starter solonoid this is normally made worse by the engine being hot.the solonoid on this engine is part of the starter so a whole starter motor will be needed to cure
