first spray it really good with P.B buster or something along those line then try getting a smaller socket and using it if it doesn't want to go on then tap on the bolt with a hammer once you have the socket on the bolt just try loosing it slowly so you don't snap the bolt head off
The selonoid is on the Starter which could be the problem.its proberbly sticking. Make sure its out of gear and when you turn the key get someone to tap the starter with the end of a bar or big spanner or if you can get at it a hammer.
Check your battery for voltage. Should be at least 12.5 V. If it stays there when you try to start put the trans, in neutral and try to start, May be you neutral safety switch. If still nothing try tapping the starter motor with a hammer and try starting. If it starts you have a bad starter. Alway's check you cable ends on the battery for carrosion, Wish ya luck!
Does the battery have enough capacity to turn over the engine though? Even flat car batteries will still power the radio. The best way would be to jump start the car uing a set of jumper leads. If it starts you know it is the battery that needs replacing.
If it still wont turn over then it is most likely the solenoid in your starter motor. You can often tap the starter motor with a hammer and free the solenoid as a temporary fix. The starter motor is loacted at the back of the engine on the bell housing if rear wheel drive, or around the tranmission if a front wheel drive.
Your battery seems to be dead. The lights on the dash need almost nothing to light up but once you try to crank it up - the starter takes a ton of voltage and the lights on your dash die.
Have you tried to start the car with the door open?
When the door is open the dome light is on, and when you try to start the car it goes off, right?
If your answer to the last question is "YES" - have your car battery changed.
If the headlights dim when you try to crank the enging the problem will be the starter motor jamming. If they remain bright you can suspect the starter soleniod or wiring but as it is making a clicking noise, I would look at the solenoid first.
