The other day, I got into my Toyota Highlander and attempted to start it and only got the rapid click, click, click without the turnover. I had assumed that I needed a new starter. Unfortunately, I couldn’t take care of it immediately, so backburnered it until this morning. I got in the car to get my autoparts store loyalty card and thought, what the heck… and decided to try to turn it over. Miraculously, the car started just fine.
I don’t want to get stuck out in the middle of nowhere and I have never known a starter to miraculously heal itself. Anyone have any ideas?
