As long as the battery is good (and no indication at this point that it isn't), the issue you have is in there is a grounding issue which is keeping the power from your battery to your starter. This is most likely caused in the wire going from your battery to your starter, your battery to ground, or both. You can do some things to try and see where the ...

Well, the new rotors and pads were the answer. I'm surprised that the EBC OEM replacements gave me so much trouble, but the new EBC Red Stuff (ceramic) pads and slotted rotors have been wonderful. Even with my typical hard braking, no noise, and better performance, too. (Apologies for the delayed answer. I became sidetracked and completely forgot about this ...

If the road is signed 40 MPH and under, I always use the D3 button.

Only thing I can think of that could affect the engine itself in this way is the power steering pump. Meaning the starter couldn't turn the engine because the belt can't turn the power steering pump. Check the pump fluid level and the fluid itself. If the steering is not very heavy and the pump doesn't make noise it could be some sort of a hydraulic lock, ...

A routine replacement of the starter motor would not cause an increase in fuel consumption or effect its acceleration. You may have an incorrect replacement motor, or defective motor staying engaged and causing the symptoms you described. Otherwise, starter bolts fitted in the wrong position and jamming on the engines ringgear. Connections such as vacuum ...

As discussed in the comments already, the clicking you hear is probably the starter solenoid. You have ruled out a weak battery being the probable cause by attempting to the jump-start the engine. This means either the power cable running directly from the battery to the starter motor is too resistive/poorly connected, or that the starter motor itself is no ...
