Dead battery or rusted out connections there is a really long ground cable that attaches at 3 different points along the frame on the way to the starter. I would check that and the postitive cable as well

My son's '96 had the same problem. Crawled under the vehicle and located a loose ground wire. Does sound like a ground problem.

    Was working fine then wouldn't start one day, just clicked. Bought brand new starter and battery and had both tested at Autozone, but still just clicks. Also checked fuzes, but not relays.
