Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you

if it is making a click it is either not enough power at the starter (usually due to a weak battery) or a bad starter.

Please let me know if you have further questions. Please do not forget to click a positive rating as this is the only way I receive credit for my answer, thank you. Best wishes with your vehicle.
