Question about 1998 Lexus Gs 400
My car won't start up, I here a clicking sound when i turn the key, and i got a good baterie.
Are your battery connections clean and tight? The clicking sound indicates the solenoid is not engaging the starter motor. It could be either a bad solenoid or starter motor.

The clicking sound is made by the relays. Most probable is the induction coil is damaged, thus not producing the spark for ignition. You can check it out by removing any one of the cables from the plug and hold it near any metal part of the engine block & have someone crank the engine. If no sparks fly out then the coil needs to be replaced.
However do check the fuses behind the dashboard on the drivers side first!

Your right the battery cables and where they go to are very likly to be the problem. The engine could had rusted not turning and may have to be (forced) with wrenck or prybar to get er turning. Try wacking on the starter ( wood handle of yousecond best hammer ) a real battery may not be in your car and it may have to be tested just cause it started the old beater or is new out of the discount house doesn't mean its good. Most all auto parts store can test your battery for free

It's your starter. Find location of your starter. By the flywheel. Then. Bang on it . Your car will start. You still need to replace the starter.
