Really sounds like a battery connection. Try this,turn the headlights on, then try to start it,if they get dim,its a low battery,if they go OUT it's just a poor connection,most times it's just battery cables.

Did you check the battery to see if it is up to normal 12.5 volts ?
Has the check engine light been on while the engine is running ?
Do you have headlights and warning lights on the dash when you turn the key to start ?

before you spend $$$$ on a new battery. make sure alternator belt is ok. when vehicle is running there should be at least 14 to 14.2 volts at battery. if lower its in the alternator or wiring to battery. when car is off the voltage at battery should be at least 12.5 to 13 volts. hope this helps!! the battery may be weak! but check the alternator first, for proper voltage. have a good day !

My gauges work but it wont turn over i dont hear any noise from the starter


Three possibilities I think:
First is weak battery. There may be enough juice to light the gauges but it takes power to turn an engine.

Second, bad solenoid. The solenoid is a relay which closes the high current circuit that delivers the cranking power to the starter motor. If you hear clicking in the engine compartment (not the starter) when you turn the ignition switch on it is probably the solenoid engaging and disengaging. However if the battery is weak it won't turn the starter motor. If the solenoid is clicking look at the battery first. The solenoid could be bad but the clicking indicates it's trying to work and there just may not be enough juice to turn over the engine.

Third possibility is the starter motor itself is dead. You have to answer some questions for yourself. Is this an old,neglected car or one that has been taken care of? I would be looking at battery. Can you jump start it? If yes then weak battery is the likely problem. If the car and battery are relatively new and in good condition you should suspect the charging system, that is, the alternator. Did this happen all of a sudden on a car that was running fine recently or has the car been sitting idle for weeks/months.Eliminate the easy stuff.
Clean battery terminals?
Good battery connections and ground?
Try jump start - if yes then follow up battery/charging system. If no start then try to hear for solenoid clicking. If jump start does nothing -figure the solenoid first. If it sounds like solenoid is kicking in but engine does not turn then the starter is looking a little guilty. Jump starting will answer a lot of questions. If the car is really dead then the car that is jumping may have to be connected and revved up a couple minutes to juice up the dead battery enough to turn the starter over. If it turns over a little during the jump start but just barely then you should figure your battery is bad.

Have power to everything but i get a clicking sound and it wont start


Check for a weak battery by load testing it,or have it load tested.A load tester is a specific tool for checking battery strength.Another not so accurate method is to turn on the headlights.If the headlights are really dim,then the battery is almost discharged.If the healdights are strong,then the battery is probably pretty strong.If the battery checks out,likely a bad starter,or starter solenoid.Good luck.
