If the battery is charged, and the vehicle just "clicks" and does not even try to turn when the ignition is engaged, then the starter is likely at fault.

you can rule out your ignition coil by disconnecting the wire from the distributor, and holding it close to the metal chassis of the car, while turning the ignition. a good ignition coil will spark/arc when tested like this. you can examine the distributor cap rotor for wear, and replace if questiionable. you can examine the spark ends of the spark plugs, looking for white or black discoloration, or oil build-up, and replace if questionable. you can try replacing the spark plug wires, and if all of this is ruled out, you should strongly consider the starter.

remove the starter, and take it to a spacialty starter/alternator rebuild shop, and have them test it. if the celliniod alone tests bad, you can replace the callaniod contact or the entire cellaniod for just a few dollars, if the entire starter tests bad, then you can have it rebuilt for around $100. if the starter doesnt resolve ths situation, then you might have a broken timing belt/chain.

Problems with 2006 chevy impala starting

Something is staying in the on position to eat you battery in the night. Try disconnecting battery for about 20 minutes to see if that will allow whatever relay is open to reset and close. Also aftermarket alarm systems and stereos can cause this issue.

Radio stays on after car is shut off.have to manually shut off radio.

Look in your owners manual for how to set your car back to factory defaults, then see if that does the trick. On my 2000 Impala LS if you have your radio on and your key out the switch the radio will shut off when you open the door. You could have a bad switch on your radio but I doubt if that is the problem.

Car sit for two years battery went dead replced that radio has power to it but wont change station or no sound nothing happens

it is most likely that the radio was reset when your car lost all power. it is the radio's theft deterent system. your local dealer can provide you with a security code if you do not have instructions for reset in the owner's manual.
