Question about 1989 Toyota Corolla 2 Door
When I am trying to start the car I just hear a clicking noise; the car does not start. It seems I have a good battery because I have lights, but cannot start the car
Just because your lights work doesn't mean your battery is good. The starter takes far more power than all your lights put together. Hook a charger to the battery, or boost it, and see how it goes.
If it still won't go, the problem will be a battery cable connection, or starter issue. The starter solenoid, relay , or the starter could be stuck in the flywheel, in which case you would have to remove it, and replace it. If that's the case be sure and check the teeth on your flywheel or flexplate. (standard or automatic?)

IM GONNA GIVE YOU SOME TIPS ON THIS IT MAY NOT NECESSARILY SOLVE THE PROBLEM BUT IT MAY RULE SOME OTHER CAUSES OUT
1 CHECK YOUR TERMINALS ONCE THEY ARE TIGHT ( CANNOT TWIST THEM WITH YOUR HAND)
2 IF THE TICKING SOUND IS STRONG AND NOT GRINDY LOCATE YOUR STATER MOTOR GET A HEAVY SPANNER AND TAP IT WHILE SOMEONE TURNS THE KEY TO START
3 IF NONE WORKS THEN CHANGE YOUR BATTERY BEFORE LOOKIN AT ANY SOLENIODS

This could be caused by a number of different issues. The most likely possibilities are a bad connection(s), i.e., battery terminal not tight, your battery needs charging or it needs to be replaced. If you can get your car to an auto parts store they can test your battery for free, but, it will need to be fully charged when they test it.
