Bad starter. Bad connection. One or the other.

Try this, turn your headlights on and try to start it. If the headlights stay nice and bright it's going to be a bad starter or bad starter solenoid. If the headlights flicker badly, dim or go out it's a bad battery cable connection. Have you load tested the battery to be sure it's good? HTH. -Jim

Jump start it if it starts its ur battery if it still clicks bad starter or solenoid or bad wire connection.
