The click you heard may have been the starter relay. If it was, it is probably bad. See if a new one helps. If not, then the wiring in the start circuit will have to be investigated.

I had same problem w/ my '88 Ram50. Turned out to be bad contacts on the battery cables. Temp fix and test was to put a little screw between the post and the end connector. Didn't have a problem then, so I replaced the cables.
