When I try to start my Subaru Legacy it makes a clicking noise but won't start. The dash lights and the headlights turn on. Is it the battery or something else

May want to check the starter.

NO! The starter's fine. It's most definitely the battery or its cable connections. Start by removing and thoroughly cleaning both terminal clamps and posts (esp the positive). Then jumpstart the car and drive a half hour. If it won't retart get a new battery. Easy peasey.
