1997 Honda Prelude Intermitent starting

Hey guys, I’m new here. I’ve got a 97 Prelude that doesn’t want to start sometimes. When I go to start, it doesn’t do nothing besides one little click noise. it doesn’t crank or anything. Most of the time I can play around with the key by turning the key back and forth and usually it would start. I’ve already replaced a few ground wires, the starter, the battery, I’ve replaced the ignition twice. I thought it could have been a key issue but I have 3 keys and they all do the same thing. The car has never left me stranded besides today on my lunch break. Most of the time, the car starts right up but it occasionally has this issue. Ive also noticed that it does it more in the cold.

Iím getting it to start by tapping on the starter with a screw driver while someone is starting it. Like Iíve said, Iíve replaced the starter twice so I doubt that it could be the starter

how about ignition control module (ICM), distributor cap, rotor & spark wires and ignition switch?
