happening for the past few weeks. It will give me a
click but eventually start after a couple trys. Now it
won't start at all. All my dome lights and headlights

you have one of two problems... Either you have a dead starter (most likely) -or- You have a broken timing belt (not as like because the car would attempt to start, but would not start up).

sounds like the starting motor crapped out, time for a new one. a dead battery will give several clicks, bad starter will usually only give one solid sounding one.

Could I try tapping on the starter to crank it if it's dead?

You really shouldnt, the starter has live wires connected to it and you could get quite a shock-- you can try though.

Ok. I'll use my plyers with the insulated handles on it then.
