Question about 1995 Chevrolet Lumina
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?
