I'm sorry. I was sure I did click on "Accept Answer". I will do so now.

By the way, it is not the battery. I am now suspecting the starter.

Thanks for your help.

Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 2 years ago.

 

Thank you for the response

Be sure battery is charged & all connections are clean & tight

When the key is turned to CRANK position, the Starter Relay should click, which sends voltage to the Solenoid, which engages the Starter
Be sure vehicle is in Park or Neutral & check Relay

I had the battery checked and am sure it is charged.

There does seem to be some sort of a "click". It actually seems to turn over once or at least try to turn over once. There is no continuous cranking sound as one sometimes hears with a bad starter.

Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 2 years ago.

 

if the clicking noise is heard when key is turned to crank & it is the starter relay, then it

sounds like you are on the right track

 

let me know if you further
