If all it does is click its either a bad battery, bad connection at the battery, bad connection at the starter, blown inline fuse, or the starter needs replaced. There is also a very slight teeny tiny possibility of it being a seized engine.

Dont forget the starter selonoid, but if it clicks then it is the battery.
