Question about 1996 Chevrolet Blazer
It could be the starter or the starter solenoid or even the starter relay. For steps in test each of these I recommend you get the Haynes repair manual on your vehicle.

Hi if you have bonnet open then turn the key if you hear a faint clicking noise then this chances are this means the solenoid is sticking on the starter motor, now the only real way of fixing this is to replace the starter.
how ever to get the car started you could try doing the following, locate the starter and give it a few hard hits with a hammer doing this will usually free the solenoid and get the starter working, how ever dont rely on this every time as it could leave you stuck.
now if you have a manual gear box car you could put it in 2nd gear and get someone to push you or roll down hill with the ignition on the when your moving let the clutch up this will then turn the engine over and fire it up ( make sure you have the ignition switched on) this will also get it started but will only work on manual gear box.
now the other problems you could have are the immobilizer if this is faulty then this could be stuck on and this would stop your car from starting, so this would need checking, now if you have a fob that opens the doors hold this as close to the ignition barrel when you turn the key to start the car if the battery is low in the fob then this should get it started if not the battery will need replacing( only if you have a central locking remote fob on your keys)
