The instruments draw only minimal power but the starter draws a whole lot. 100+ amperes.
The click you are hearing is the starter solenoid that only draws a few amperes, which even a very tired battery can supply briefly.
If you know the battery is not very old, it is probably a matter of corroded terminals.
These are located on the battery posts and can be flaky on the other ends of the cables connected to the battery,

You probably need a jump-start and have the battery check at any auto parts store.
If a jump-start doesn't get the engine to turn over, then it is a matter of the cables or a failed starter; the latter can also be checked at a parts store.

How do i fix a car that not start

sounds like " how do I make a person better, who is laying in bed and does not want to come out of it?"

As a tech I need to see the device when it does not work. I often need measurement tools and a device manual and some time to make a good diagnose.
I'm sorry, but nothing can replace that. Not even the best site on the internet can't.
Don't think you can replace a good technician or a car repair shop by a single question on
Like a doctor needs to see the patient before he can do a diagnse.

Speedo unit died then Fuel gauge went to max

the dash control board is the controler for the boards in the dash, fuel temp etc. inside the dash itself, a board on the rev counter controls voltage to feed the the fuel gauge etc. the back of the speedo burnt,there is the 3 pin voltage control chip on the board. you can replace the boards. you can remove them from another dash and place them into yours but if you say the board burnt out on the speedo . then i would just change the dash as it would be easier as you would need to replace the speedo as well. you will also need to inform dvla that the speedo has been changed as for mots its recorded. or have the speedo rectified to the right mileage. not informing dvla can affect your insurance.

rx7`s should rev to 3000 when started cold then it should settle to 750 to 1000 after about 30 to 60 seconds.
mine suffers a similar problem. so far I have been told various answers, mostly involving the bac valve, lambda sensor, air flow meter, etc. try starting of by adjusting the idle adjust screw (on top of the throttle body under plastic cover) this may be all it is. I have not had time to do mine. Its been fine otherwise and idles fine after a few minutes. mine is non turbo 87.
