Please check your battery condition.
clicking sound you hear is from the magnetic switch ***'y of the starter.
no lights & stuck ignition key is caused by a low power or bad battery.
hope this may help.

There is no reaction when turning the key to start the car


Turn key to On.
Turn on headlights manually... Do they come on?
Are there any lights on the dash?
If yes to these, battery is possibly not the sole problem.
Check for good, tight and clean connections at battery terminal posts!
If yes to above, continue on & get a helper... Turn key past on, to Start position.
Do you hear a click sound at time key is turned to Start?
If yes, then ignition switch is not problem, starter relay is getting power, and is now sending power to starter, but starter is not working.
Pic any No's... Then look there.
Good luck.

Why will my jeep not start


Likely that the "clicking sound" behind the dashboard is the IGNITION RELAY. Start by replacing the ignition relay (inexpensive and easy to replace).

1998 nissan maxima ignition troubles


You are describing a couple different issues, First off you should never see smoke come from your ignition. You say you replaced it but if you did and this was after it "smoked" then you may have had more damage than just the ignition.
The click you are hearing sounds like the starter trying to engage, but the armature is stuck. Try a light couple of taps with a hammer directly on the starter. If the car starts... then you need to replace the starter. Keep in mind you may have to have someone hold the key in the "start" position while you tap it. Make sure the emergency brake is on and the wheels are chaulked.

I have a 2005 Tahoe with 43,000 miles and it will not start. It is not the battery. When you turn on the key all it will do is click and all light will come on.


Most likely the battery--even though you say no

If the battery is new ,then the solenoid on the starter
or the starter it's self
