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.

if it wont turn over 1st check the ground s on the car and the battery 1st. your battery can be fully charged and the car will not start even over night this can happen. then look at the starter. Note: if you have over 109K on the car and the timing belt has never been replaced you will need to have this checked as well.

Ford focus won't turn over ,was fine this morning parked up now won't start getting whinning sound from side of engine

If the temperature is low, then the engine might have struck up. You need to give heat and then try starting. If you still face the problem, then open the front and check if any wires have been cut off or else call or an mechanic to solve the problem,

Car won't start, battery is good, won't even turn over.

These vehicles are prone to failures in the antitheft system. This will actually lock out the starter and/or injectors. Read thru this link, might be your problem.

2006 Dodge Dakota will not start. Battery is good all acc. work, but. nothing when key is turned. (Started twice this morning and then stalled, now nothing)

just a guess but it might be the starter solinoid.? try tapping the solinoid with a hammer and see if it will crank over.

What is the basic process when the car wont start? Battery is good... I know I should check the starter next, but I'm not sure where the starter is or exactly what it looks like...

next.gif getimage.php? it looks like this if your car wont turn over is a possibility, that the starter is bad, try to hit the starter motor before you remove ie and triy to start it see what happens, hit it hard, if it starts you need a new starter.the starter is near the transmission underside.

My 1994 toyota camry the starter wont turn over when it gets cold? the starter is good and the battery is good. after a few turns of the keys it will start and after it gets warm i wont have the problem...

My starter tested great in several shops also but a friend of mine said my starter is an original part and would be the "weakest link" in trying to correct the problem of turning over. No one had a solution so I got a new starter and WOW it works perfectly every morning, etc!
