    It sounds like either the starter/starter solenoid, or a battery cable problem (loose cable or solenoid control cable).

    As for where it's located, have someone try to start the engine while you listen while you listen for where the starter or clicking noise is coming from. You can also follow the + cable to the remote mounted or starter mounted solenoid (the battery ground will also head to the engine area as well, but it will attach to the casting of the engine or chassis, not the starter.).

    Reply back what you find and we can help further.

92 Lexus LS400 only clicking noise when I turn key to start

There are a number of things that could cause that. Try turning the key to the on position and crossing the starter terminals with a screwdriver. If it starts you have a bad ignition. If it still just clicks your starter has seized up or your battery might be lacking the charge to do the job. Hope these help you.

When turning the car I will get no power at all.

this problem is caused by burned main battery contacts in the starter solenoid, replace the starter solenoid or rebuild it if you can find a place to buy the contact set.
