Question about 1999 GMC Suburban
The clicking you hear is the starter solenoid making and breaking connection and this can be cause by a tired battery or poor conductance between battery and starter.
You can have the battery load-tested at any auto parts chain store but if you know it should be OK, then your problem can be caused by corrosion at the battery terminals or at the other end of the heavy cables; the positive cable goes to the main starter terminal, the negative may go to the chassis and then the engine block or vice versa.
To clean these, ALWAYS disconnect the NEGATIVE terminal FIRST. Removing the positive first can result in accidentally getting your tool between there and any grounded metal; something you really don't want to do to the tool or battery terminal.
