The way this car was made is for this problem to ONLY be fixed by the dealer! No other repair shop just cost me $700+ dollars. There are no other solutions. Sorry.The dealer will say it's a cluster.It's because of the built in security system, and no it can be removed.

If your battery terminals aren't loose or corroded, and your battery is good- and obviously, you starter is okay, and it wasn't jammed in the ring gear--- 1. Automatic transaxle not in park. 2. Broken, loose or disconnected wires in the starting circuit. Inspect all wires and connectors at the battery, starter solenoid and ignition switch. ( on steering column) 3. Faulty ignition switch. 4. Engine seized. Try to turn the crankshaft with a socket and breaker bar.
Hope this helps.

The click you hear is the starter relay. Check for continuity thru relay with battery negative cable disconnected and switch in start position. If no continuity, it probably has burned contacts. Sometimes these can be taken apart and contacts filed/sanded cleaned.

Neutral safety switch is possible, also ignition switch. I'd clean both ends of battery cables for starters (no pun) thoroughly. The bottom connections are exposed to grease and road grime, also connections at solenoid. Clean them with good wire brush
