If just clicks when trying to start most likely the starter is bad. You can try tapping on the starter with a hammer while trying to start vehicle at the same time and if it starts replace starter. If it does not start by doing this still can be the starter if it is the starter solenoid. Will only start by tapping on starter if the brushes in starter are bad.
