2009 Liberty Limited clicks instead of starting

I have a Jeep Liberty Limited 2009 that occasionally will not start right away. I have already had my battery replaced, my starter replaced and the wiring from the starter to the ignition. When it won't start it just makes a click noise, but then will eventually start after a few tries. Sometimes it only clicks once then starts but other times it has not started for over 20 minutes. This often occurred after I used the factory remote starter, the car starts initially but the next time I go to start my car with the key is when I would get the click and no start.

I went three months without using the remote starter and it only happened once in that time frame. I used the remote starter everyday last week in the morning and my car didn't start 3 different times soon after. I have a log of every time this occurs; date, time of day, temperature, etc. It often occurs on a day were it is raining or very damp out. I have had my car to 3 different Jeep dealers and only one was able to duplicate the issue. However they were not able to diagnose the problem because "nothing came up on their computer flagging an error". Please help!

Hmmm I think there might be another member or two that will be able to chime in on this problem.

I know in the past, mostly older cars, have had problems starting when it's raining or moist out, but I have a feeling it won't be related on this one.
