Make sure the positive cable, makes a good connection at the battery and at the starter. Make sure the negative cable makes a good ground connection at the battery and (preferably) at the engine.
If the starter spins and no crank, the problem is most likely the Solenoid's bendix gear is stuck.
Have someone hit (not too hard) the starter while you try to start the car. This usually works by dislodging a stuck bendix gear.

Try turning your key on and jumping the starter. There are 2 wires at starter. A big one (battery power) and a little one (key command). Take a small screwdriver and arch those two wires together while key is on. If nothin you need a starter. If it starts test your key ( test light on little wire while cranking)

That Clicking is the Battery causing it not to Start. You need to Replace that Battery or at Least put a Charger on it for a Couple of hours to see if you can Salvage it for a While.

have had this issue before and was actually the contacts in the starter solenoid it did sound like a dead battery. Do you have a gauge or idiot light for your battery voltage? if you have a gauge watch it when you try to start it anything over 10 volts it should at least crank even if it is slow. otherwise you need to look at what could be draining your battery ie interior lights staying on, large aftermarket stereo system, the stereo usually will stay on for ten minutes after the key is shut off or until a door is opened. hope this helps good luck feel free to email me if you need any other suggestions

First, remove the battery terminals and clean them. Check that the ground wire on the block is tight and clean and the wire at the starter is also good. If you have 12v at the main starter cable and12v at the smaller (trigger) wire next to it with the key turned to the "start" position, it's likely the starter is bad (providing you can turn the engine by hand with key switch off) Make sure that the battery has 12v before starting diagnosis...radio etc. draw far less than the starter does. Even if relatively new, if the charging system isn't working, it will draw down the battery in less than an hour while driving..

Common problem for GM. Check your negative battery cable. Where the battery connects to the cable, there are rubber ends that can get caught in between the connections. I use washer on many gm battery connections.
