Although the battery is good, is it properly charged? why was the battery replaced? could be an alternator problem and the battery is not getting properly charged. the starter solenoid is getting power if you hear the clicking sound, but not enough to turn the starter motor.

Sounds like a starter problem. Check the connections at the starter and try tapping the starter with a hammer.

Either your starter or the cable from the starter to the battery is bad.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS IN ORDER!!! Did it start ok before replacing the battery? Chances are the battery install is the problem. 1st, insure battery is fully charged. If that checks out, check your connections...they may not be solid. Based solely upon your sympton, your battery is either not 100% charged or the connections are bad. If that fails, the solenoid is ok because it clicks. I'd bench test the starter and see if it spins. If it fails the bench test, replace the starter.
