I had the same problem called the dealer but they could not get it in. The service tech said what happens a lot is the battery voltage gets low and when the starter kicks out it gets hung up on a tooth of the flywheel, He said to put a wrench on the end of the crank on the engine and work it back and forth and is should break loose. It is a tight fit to get to it but i did that and it came free, It took a bit of time to get it free, Just had to keep working it back and forth, Never had it happen again but saved me from not have a gen for a long trip. I believe it was a 17 or 19 MM wrench that was needed. Hope this helps.

If it is a fast "click, click, click you may also check to see if the battery cables are tight. That would happen to me on my cay when the clamps were loose or slightly corroded.
