Question: 2003 Voyager clicks before starting

When its colder outside, the car clicks prior to starting. Then eventually starts and runs fine. Some clicks last 3 seconds, some are for 10s. New battery, new starter, and swapped the starter relay out with another one but still have the issue. Not sure where else to investigate.

Have the new battery (as well as the charging system) tested. It may not be able to deal with the cold temperatures.

Also make sure the starter bolts and mounting surfaces are clean and are not painted as they are the ground path for the starting circuit and can cause this type of issue.

And have a voltage drop test done on both battery cables to make sure they aren't breaking down internally.
