The clicking sound by the fuse box sounds like a relay thats clicking.

open the fuse box and putn your fingers on the relays, identify the one clicking. you can attempt to replace it (remember to use the exact same type of relay).

However this may not solve the problem since the relay clicking is normal. It sends the signal so that the whole starter system will receive enough power to actually start the car.

have you checked if the are any signal wires that connect to the solenoid on the starter that are disconnected ?

OK...this definetly sounds like the starter/solenoid, but not because it is faulty, but possibly due to low battery power......this clicking you are hearing might be the starter relay........what checks have you done already

    I checked the battery connections-good. Checked the wires at the starter itself; they appear solid, connected well.

    I do believe you are correct on the low battery. The charger was on for 1/2 an hour and it now will start. Thank you.

Try checking the fuse in the fuse box panel either under your hood, or under your dash. If the metal on the inside of the fuse is busted, then your horn won't work.

check the fuses under the hood, thats where the power outlet fuse is located, but also check under the dash box if radio still doesnt work after replacing fuse under the hood.

Sounds like a dirty connection in the fuse box or on a plug in relay pin.

Disconnect the battery
Remove each fuse and then replace it
Remove each plug in relay and replace it

Try that

Two locations -- one under the instrument panel on the left side, and one under the hood next to the battery. See AutoZone's online manual here.
