I have a Lexus GX470. Drove car, turned it off for 20 minutes. When tried to start, just heard fast clicking sound, lights on dash blinking. Got jump start and works fine. Had battery tested and it is a good battery. Could it be the starter going bad?

Hi! Generally when this happens and your battery tests positive, your likely candidate is a bad alternator. This is the mechanical part on your car that keeps your battery charged when driving. When the alternator goes bad, the battery has no way to recharge and thus once its energy runs out, the battery will die. Would recommend checking the alternator. Hope this Helps!
