Question about 1999 Chevrolet Lumina
When you turn the key, the car would only make one single clicking noise. I was told the starter was bad. Replaced the starter and now there is no noise at all when you turn the key. Everything else comes on in the car...the battery is fully charged. What's wrong?
Check wires or in right order! & that the small exciter wire has a good connection

Sounds like you have a bad ground or a bad safety neutral switch if it's automatic put the brake on put in neutral and try starting if nothing try wiggling the shifter a little see if it try’s. If nothing then the safety neutral switch on the side of transmission may be bad. If it's a stick the safety natural switch may be bad and it's on the clutch pedal and you have to jump the two wires on the switch then try it out of gear of course and if that don't work you need a test light and somebody that can get under the car and ground the test light and touch the solenoid wire and turn the key to start position if the light comes on you have a bad starter. Or a bad ground, I don’t remember if that year had safety fuse or not it would be on the firewall so you would need someone who could check it for you, I hope this helps. if you need more instructions and you have an able bodied person just post here for more info.

You need a new starter solenoid. It is essentially a heavy duty remote switch that is activated by your ignition key switch. The solenoids get stuck or don't conduct well after 6 to10 years.
