I will provide an honest answer. I trust this will be appreciated. Please remember that a low rating PUNISHES me for being honest and that I receive nothing for my time until a positive rating is clicked.
This would most likely be low voltage or a failing starter. I would try jump starting the car to see if the problem persists. If it does, then you likely have a failing starter or possibly a voltage drop at the starter (although a voltage drop is unlikely)
Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
