When you say it makes a click noise, is this a 1-click per ignition cycle, or a rapid clicking?
Ok. The 1-click per ignition cycle is the classic, tell-tale sign of a faulty Starter Solenoid. On this vehicle, the solenoid is mounted to the side of the starter, and is usually replaced as a unit (the new starter comes with a new solenoid). Make sure the electrical connections at the solenoid are tight, and there are no loose or broken wires. If the visual inspection checks ok, replacing the starter will solve the problem. The starter is located under the vehicle, front.
The starter is located under the vehicle, front. Best access is from under the front of the vehicle, working upwards.

The starter sells for around $270 and the labor time guide calls for a little over an hour to complete the job.
