98 Gs300 With Starter Issues

Recommended Posts

With increasing frequency, the starter does not engage when turning the key. Lights, radio, etc come on, but nothing else happens. After several tries, the engine cranks right up. We have a new battery & the battery cables are not corroded. (This was a problem in the past.)

Any ideas or suggestions as to the cause and cure for this problem?

it seems as though you just need to replace the starter.

Yes I was going to say starter contacts as well. You may want to check the teeth on both the starter gear and flex plate since its not engaging perfectly all the time. Hopefully they are all in good condition. Better to check with the starter out than have a bigger headache later on.
