since the car will crank after a few tries, your starter is the likely culprit. i regularly replace Camry starters for this exact symptom
dead battery..not enough chargeAnswerA loose connection can also cause the clicking, check the cables. If the battery is years or older, replace it. The alternater may not be charging the battery or there may be a parasitic draw draining the battery. AnswerIt could be anything electrical. Most likely, if the battery is charged, and the cables are tight, it could be the starter. More commonly the solenoid. Try tapping the solenoid with the car off, and try starting it. If after this, the car starts.. then you need to check into replacing the solenoid, or the entire starter motor, if the solenoid is connected to the starter.
Battery is weak,battery post connectors need cleaning or tightening up are the first things I would check.Cable going to the starter from battery loose at starter and finally the starter itself or the solenoid or relay may be bad,hopefully it is loose or dirty connections.Maybe all you need is a jump start if the battery is weak.And if it starts have it checked before it leaves you stranded somewhere.
There could be oil in the solenoid which is too thick in the morning but once it warms up later in the day the oil is thin enough to allow the solenoid to make contact and turn the starter. Is the solenoid clicking when you try to start it? It could also be a bad battery connection but it doesn't sound like it.
It sounds like the starter is bad. The clicking you hear is the solenoid trying to kick-over the starter. If the vehicle starts but, won't stay running, it could be the alternator, or the wireing to (from) the battery or alternator (most likely the ground wire). Or it could be the dreaded MASS AIRFLOW SENSOR!!!!
"Clicking" or "Chattering" Sound When Attempting to Crank EngineA clicking or chattering sound when the key is turned to the start position indicates low battery voltage, OR that that inadequate voltage/current is getting from the battery to the starter motor. If the battery voltage is 11 volts, or greater, then the next most common cause for clicking is a loose or corroded connection anywhere between the battery and/or including the starter itself. Corrosion can occur on the contact surfaces inside of a connection, and be invisible without disconnecting the connector(s) to observe and remove it. These two are the most common causes.However, clicking/chattering could also indicate:A defective battery,Failed or low output alternator or generator,Worn out starter solenoid,Defective starter.There are probably other causes that I've overlooked at the moment. Without doing a "hands on troubleshooting" of your vehicle's starting electrical system, no one here can specifically identify the precise cause.You need to first fully charge the battery and try again. If that solves the problem, then you need to determine why the battery voltage was too low.If charging the battery does not solve the clicking problem, then the problem will be in other areas of the starting electrical system.
If the starter clicks, but doesn't start the car, that indicates that the starter solenoid is working, but the commutator that actually spins the engine is not. Take the starter back and have it tested. The battery could also be at fault. If the battery doesn't supply enough power you'll get the same result. check the battery voltage first should be 12.6 volts if not jump the battery see if it starts.if it does bad battery.
