    Sounds like the gear is stripped out. Do a search on it and you'll find a bunch of info

    do you have an aftermarket alarm, keyless entry, or remote start?

    mine was doing the same thing,there is a plastic gear in the motor that wears out. pretty cheap part,if youre mechanically inclined its cheaper than a whole motor
