Its a fresh battery...replaced about a month ago. I changed the starter relay and it still does it.
I have an 04. Mine died around late 2009. It would click then start. Got worse after a couple months until one day my family and I went out for lunch and got stranded. It clicked away for about 45 minutes. I tried to reach the starter to get a stick to hit it some but the location is retarded and couldnt reach it.
I removed the starter had it rebuilt. A shop rebuilt it in 2 hours. It wasn't the starter motor that broke though. It was the solenoid that pushes the gearing out that was broken. If you already checked the connection and battery is good. It's time to remove the intake manifold. And I agree with you it's a stupid design. Don't wait like I did and get stranded. Be careful not to drop anything down the intake holes.
