    A video of the problem in action:

    There is a second long delay from turning the key to the engine turning. The only thing happening during this delay is a faint clicking sound- which is rapid to where it almost sounds more an “eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee”. It may not be audible in the video but you can see the delay from my key ignition turning to the engine starting up.

    -It can happen at any time but notably occurs more frequently when nighttime headlamps, AC, or hazard lights are in use.

    -I recently replaced the starter, just as an fyi if it helps to diagnose with this in mind.

    -problem is occurring more often as time passes.

    Swap the starter relay with a known good one. The contacts in the relay could be bad.
