Re: relay starter switch
Simple thing the click your hearing is a bad connection from battery to starter or the ground
the battery posts could be coroded or frade
remove wire look for frade wire and adjust and clean on the post of battery both ground and positive make sure they have tight connection
also make sure starter has good connection this will also give you the clicking sound cause these things i decribed are just things that have a bad contact
now for the other part of clicking its not your relay cause obviously the power is making it but not much to turn starter
other things that can be wrong
starter silennoid bad
bad cell in battery even when the battery tester says the battery is good a dead cell wouldnt show
alternator not charging battery
bad ingnition coil
this are a few things that would run down and give bad battery click check with top of this help with the cables first this will probably be the cause

the first thing that I would check is to make sure your battery is fully charged or try and jump the battery using another car battery. if still no go then I would say that your starter solenoid is bad. while checking the solenoid/starter double check to make sure your block to body ground cable is secure.
Thanks for choosing FixYa and welcome to the sight. Did you check your starter solenoid? It may be that. You need to check your ignition fuse as well. Make sure the battery has a full charge and is holding a proper charge. If the starter isn't getting the full current, it may not work right. You need to make sure that you clean your terminals and post with a wire brush. Inspect all you wires from the battery to the starter. If you have to, test the wires for current with a voltage meter.

When you turn your key to start your engine, it just clicks, right? If so, more than likely this is due to a bad battery. Even though your battery may appear to be fully charged, it may have a dead cell, or worse. If you get a jump, does the vehicle start? If so, replace your battery.
Possible sources of the problem if the engine does not crank or the relay clicks:
clean all connections very good ( batt post connectors,gound wire from batt to frame/motor, also clean starter connections,and alternator connections) I know pep boys checked but you cannot properly check a battery unless it has a full charge!!!!! If it wont accept a full charge then batt is bad, If it charges to a full charge and fails a draw test the batt is bad. also when a draw test is done you can have the charging system checked also to make sure batt is recieving the proper charge input. all inexpensive checks, get it running and take it to a garage, 3 min test usually not even a charge most of the time. NOT A DEALER, and have them show you what they are doing. if you are a female have a male friend go with you or have it done. I dont care what anybody says!!!!!! When it comes to a inexperienced female, the DEALERSHIP,the REPAIR GARAGES will all try to get some kind of MONEY out of you before you leave their place of business.
the problem seems to be with the realy which clicks when you try to start. when you start this relay sends the signal to the starting motor and rotates the flywheel. due to the damage of this relay no signal is going. so please change the relay and try it wil work.

Sounds like a flat battery, it will have enough power to kick in the starter solenoid [the clicking noise] but not enough to turn engine over. Best to fit a battery that you know is good into the vehicle. If the fault still persists the starter could be faulty. To check the starter bridge the main battery power terminal  on the starter solenoid and the smaller terminal  also on the solenoid [power from ignition switch]. The starter should turn. MAKE SURE VEHICLE IS IN NEUTRAL WHEN DOING THIS AND TAKE CARE NOT TO BRIDGE POWER CABLES TO STARTER HOUSING.
The starter solenoid will click when the battery is to low to start the car. Have the battery charged and load tested to make sure it's good. Check the charging system to make sure the alternator is good. Check the wire connections at the starter. If either is loose, the starter won't work. With a full, known good battery, turn on the headlamps and try starting the engine. If the headlamps stay bright, the contacts in the solenoid are bad. If the headlamps dim greatly or go out, the starter is shorted out and must be replaced. Also try turning the crankshaft manually with a breaker bar and socket if you suspect that the engine may have seized up. Charlie
But the first step is check the BATTERY condition..
See if is full charged..
because is the common simptoms of that problem.
If yes with a TEST light you can check the 12v at the starter motor., when other person. try to start.
If there a signal. the more probable is the starter bad.
If not. check all the fuses and connection at the starter and relay. check the NUETRO SAFETTLY SWITCH.
or CLUTCH swithc. for proper funtion.
OK.. I hope this information work for your problem.
