This sounds like it could be a faulty starter motor. The 'click' is the solenoid switch engaging but the motor itself isn't moving. You'll need to swap out the starter and the solenoid as they are one single unit. Changing them isn't complicated. 1 small wire connector, 1 large wire connector and 2 bolts holding it onto the engine block. The hard bit is actually getting to it to swap it out. They are often jammed into tight inaccessible places where you will lose the skin off three knuckles and one elbow getting it out.

then turn to off position and repeat at least two more times the shut off key and attempt to start , also hook a battery charger or maintainer to battery to avoid killing battery ,if this works please leave a message about it thank you

Turn key and just a loud click starter not turning but I noticed when key is in start position all power seems to go out dash lights radieo dome everything goes out until key is returned to run pos.

Everything is supposed to go off in the start position. You would have power to the engine computer and other components to start.
If the engine is not locked up, it could be the starter or a bad connection with one of the battery cables.

I have a 2005 Nissan Murano and the engine will not turn over. The engine has a clicking sound and all of the lights/windows/gauges work fine.

if its a single click every time you turn the key to the start position than the starter is probably bad. If its multiple clicks when you hold the key in the start position its probably a weak battery.

Won't start. key works in aux position but not when turned all the way

If you have power in aux position(ex.)radio works but doesn't when you put the key in the start position,the ignition switch is bad,the contacts are warn out for starting/cranking&run positions,these are used everytime you start your car,but auxillary is ony used once in awhile(ex.)your sitting listening to music while waiting for someone to come,but if you do have radio in the run position,but no cranking/starting you could have a blown resistor on fire wall or fuse for ignition,or the starter has called it quits,good luck I don't know if the starter is clicking rapid or just one click or just no power not cranking or cranking a better description of everything that happens will make this alot easier

2004 ion won't start. Lights work. When I turn key don't get series of clicks, get one snap.

That symptom usually means the solenoid on the starter is bad and no longer is completing the circuit to engage the starter. A new starter will likely solve that issue. A series of rapid clicks would indicate a week battery. You can try repeatedly turning the key to the start position rapidly, sometimes the starter wil start working. You can also try tapping the starter while somebody holds the key in the start position, if the starter engages place it.

My blazer will not start, the lights come on cd player works but when you go to turn the key over it does not make the clicking sound so i know its not the battery. But why won't it turn over and start?

This issue happens a lot with these vehicles.

What you may want to do is this; Put your key in the 'Run' Position, not 'Start', and press on the Brake, then move the shifter all the way towards the back, so the red marker is on the '2'. Then, remove your foot from the break, and then move the shifter all the way back to the Park position. Next switch your key back to the 'Off' position.

Now, try to start your car.

If it starts, the issue was that you did not have the shifter all the way in the Park position. If it does not want to start, check your fuse box and see if you have a blown fuse. (Make sure if you replace a fuse that you replace it with the same type and rating).

If the fuses look OK, then you may have an issue with the starter solenoid. Turn the key back go the Off Position, slowly turn the key to the On Position, slowly. Listen carefully. You should hear at least a 'click'. This is the solenoid engaging but not turning. If you hear that click, then turn the key to the Start Position. If it doesn't turn over, the issue may be with the Starter.

Fortunately, the Starter has the Starter Solenoid attached to it and it normally comes as one unit. There are two bolts that hold the Starter in place. Make sure, if you are going to change out the Starter, that your remove the Positive Battery Cable from the Battery. The Positive Battery Cable goes directly to the Starter. If you don't remove that cable from the Positive Battery Post/Terminal, you may cause an arc under the engine. Trust me, you don't want to do that.

Let me know if that helps..
