Subaru legacy Gt 96 clicks but wont start just pulled it out and tested working fine any idea where i would put my attention next?
You don't say what it was you tested or how, but I assume it was the battery. If you just put a voltmeter on it, that will not tell you if the battery is dying.
The symptoms you describe are classic, the sound of the starter solenoid pulling in, and arise almost always from
- a dying battery which cannot hold a full charge, but which can still pull in the starter solenoid, run the radio etc, but not crank the motor
- worn starter solenoid main contacts which cannot close the main supply circuit from battery to starter motor
- a dead segment in the starter motor armature which is preventing it from rotating
- a bad ground, usually between engine block and chassis
One way to narrow it down is to try jump starting your motor from a known good battery or another car with running motor, taking precautions to avoid frying your electronics.
