Question about Ford Thunderbird
If the solenoid is just clicking, then your solenoid is not getting enough voltage to fully engage the bendix that goes forward and engages your starter, that will spin the flywheel. Either you have a low battery, or your alternator is not fully charging your battery, or you have a bad cell in your battery, or the cable connections to your battery post are corroded.
First remove the clamps from your battery post one at a time and clean the insid of the clamps and the battery post with emery paper/sandpaper. Re-clamp and try again. Either check your battery with a volt ohm meter for 13.2 volts, or take it to a parts store and have them check your battery. You may be able to start the vehicle by jump starting it from another vehicle.
