Question about 1995 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
Hi the first thing you need to do is get the bonnet open and have a listen where the click is coming from get some one else to turn the key then listen if the noise is coming from the gearbox or bottom of engine then this indicates your starter motor selenoid is sticking and if this is the case the starter will need replacing.
to get it started you can hit the starter with hammer a few times and see if this will allow it to fire up if not then the starter is no good and will need replacing.
if your is manual gear box then you can put the car in second gear get some one to push the car and let clutch up to turn engine slightly then try starting with the key, doing this sometimes get the starter working but dont rely on this method as it will stop working any time.
now if the clicking noise is coming from the fuse box then this would suggest you had immobiliser problem and if this is the case then you need to get in touch with main dealer and ask them to reset your imobiliser.
let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

This problem is caused by burned battery connection contacts inside the starter motor solenoid (part of the starter), the click is the solenoid pluger being pulled back to make a battery connection to turn the starter, in your case that connection is never made due to burned away contacts. this is the most common problem with all modern light weight "mini" starters.
