I put the key in the ignition. I got lights, radio and a/c working (acura tl 2005), but I can not turn the engine on. I can only hear just a single click? Where's the problem?

Do mean that you can't get the key to turn to the crank position or you can but all it does is the click? If it is the click in the crank position then most likely it is your starter, it may have a bad spot on the armature or the solenoid contacts or contact ring is burnt, if it is the solenoid you maybe able to replace the contacts and ring and save a little money compared to buying a starter unit. But you have to get it checked out to find out for sure what has failed.
