When key is turned the starter is energized by a solenoid that applies power directly from the battery to the starter. Any loose connection will prevent the starter from turning over. The solenoid can also have burnt spots on the contacts inside case that will prevent current from getting to the starter. A click noise is the solenoid energizing so
if all connections are tight and the battery is good the only
other problem is the starter may be bad. Brushes on the
starter may have seen their life ended. this is usually identified by tapping on starter with a hammer while trying to start engine. If starter spins, replacement is needed.
