Clicking When Trying To Start 1.8 Vvti

Recommended Posts

I have an 04 reg avensis with the 1.8vvti, its done about 90k. Today when i tried to start the engine i just heard continuous clicking, i thought it would probably be the starter solenoid clicking on and off or a relay somewhre. I kept trying it but all i heard was continuous rapid clicking. I then gave it a few min and tried again and it starts just fine. Any ideas what could be up? is it normal for starter solenoids to fail at 90k? also if not the solenoid what relay could it be? Thanks
