Test battery, if o.k. check connections from battery to starter and battery ground connections, if all is good then starter or starter solenoid may be bad.

Agree. Battery first, then go deeper. "Clicking" is very common with a weak, but not dead, battery.

Same as above


one click would be the starter , if it clicks more than once it would be a weak battery trying to kick in the solenoid
