Bryan, 1st check that the battery connections are clean and tight, and also the same for starter connections (starter is positioned between the engine and transmission, probably has 2-3 bolts and wiring connections. Have you had the battery tested? Don't buy a starter until you do. The lights and radio can work, but the battery could be undercharged enough to not be able to crank the engine over (you are correct that the 'clicking' sound is classic bad or low charge battery, but check the above 1st). A parts store can do a free check if you pull it out and bring it down. After checking the connections, try to jump start the car. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Testimonial: "You were right. It was the battery. Thanks much! Bryan"
This is a starter solenoid issue. The best way to fix it is to change the entire starter, but there are solenoid repair kits available to fix just the solenoid. The rest of the starter is old, so it won't belong before it will have to be replaced anyway. I just do it all at once and be done with it.

Under the stearing wheel there is a fuse box on the left hand side, remove the pannel. Above the fuse box you will see a wiring harness with a box taped to it. Push all the cables in and test it while your doing it.
