The Battery is not fully Charged or the Cable Connections to the Battery are corroded or oxidized.
The clicking is an indication of this. Yes you have a radio and lights and all; but there is not enough power reaching the Starter to make it work.
A good way to prove this is to get a jump start. With a good solid connection of the jumper cables, the car should start.
Remove the Wire Cables to the Battery.
Use a Battery Cleaning Brush ($2) at most stores. Brush the inside holes of the Cable connections. Brush the Battery Post. Shiny metal is what you should see. Reconnect the Cables to the Battery Make sure they are tightened properly.
At Walmart/KMart or even Harbor Freight they have Volt Meters for around $5-$10. Take a measurement of your Battery. Anything less than 11 Volts will not Start the car.
Today's Batteries only last 3 to 5 years. When was the last new battery you purchased for this car?

Clicking when i turn the key


Clicking instead of starting? The clicking is usually the starter solenoid being pushed out to the flywheel. If your engine isn't turning then it means that either your battery is too weak to turn the engine or your starter has malfunctioned or maybe engine that your engine has locked up.

Recommend you either jump start the car or use a battery charger with the start function to see if it is the battery or starter/engine lock up. If the engine still does not turn over. Take off your serpetine belt and try to rotate your engine with a large socket. If the engine rotated, then it is most likely your starter/solenoid that is bad. If the engine would not rotate by hand then something inside the engine has malfunctioned and it will take some serious work to get it operational again.

98 saturn sl1 starter clicking when trying to start.


hi...
did you check the voltage of the battery.?

because the power required for lights and radio are very less. but for starting the engine is more becaause ot needs to turn the engine. please check the voltage it should be 12-14 volts.
if it doesnt have this much power charge the battery and check start it wil start.

if my answer was useful please rate me

Sounds like starter selanoid, but first make sure battery connections are clean and tight, if sure they are then turn on headlights and try to start if still clicks and lights dim its starter.

Engine don't start and have a clicking sound


you should check and see the batttery smart visor indicator (if applicable - see owners manual)
this may be that the battery has been drained and does not have enough power to rotate the starter. lights, dashboard, instruments light up ok as the voltage is there but the power (amperage) is low. please refer to owners manual on how to recharge your battery. bare in mind that removing the baterry from the care will reset systems (audio, alarm) and you wil need to recode them by using the codes provided with the car.
