Question about Chevrolet Cavalier
The click noise is the sound of the starter SOLENOID clicking but not contacting to supply voltage to the starter motor.
Now a multimeter test will confirm if the solenoid is contacting and if so then the starter motor is faulty.
It can be due failure of the BRUSH in the motor or the commutator. If so remove the motor and confirm.
Also if the starter pinion is struck the solenoid will click and the motor may not turn.

It's your starter. Find location of your starter. By the flywheel. Then. Bang on it . Your car will start. You still need to replace the starter.

Sounds like you might need a new starter. If the lights and radio still come on, then you may need a new battery.
I hope this helps. Good luck!

will it start with a jump ? if it does replace the battery and have the charging system tested, if it will not start with a jump then most likely you will need to replace the starter.

SOURCE: 2003 concorde, won't start, lights work, radio works, power windows work, but the car won't even make a click. When i turn the ignition to off position, i get ten beeps. What is this and why d
Turn the key to ON , OFF , ON , OFF , ON within 5 seconds an ODB 2 code should appear in the odometer. You can look it up on google under ODB codes. If no code appears (this happens a lot) then look under the hood for the relay box by the left fender. There will be a starter relay and a bunch of other relays. Verify they all have the same number. You can swap the starter relay with another (other than the shutdown relay) like headlight relay. If that doesn't work then it could be an ignition switch or starter solenoid.
Good luck Ron
