I have a 1995 Lexus LS400 with engine type 1UZ-FE and 116,000 miles. My Lexus started making a clicking sound when I tried to start it much like when the battery is dead. However, I am wondering if it is the starter because it always starts if I try a second or third time. It seems as if by re-inserting the key and turning it more forcefully it starts. When it finally starts, it starts quickly and I cannot hear any dragging in the starter.
Your help will be appreciated, since it will cost about $700 to repair with parts and labor.
