Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

If you're hearing a light click when turning the key to the crank position it's most likely the starter relay. The ASD and fuel pump relays will click when the key is first turned on, the starter relay when turning to the crank position.

There are quite a few things that can cause a no crank condition. If the starter relay is actually clicking though the problem has to be a lost power feed to the relay, the relay itself, a wiring issue between the relay and starter, the starter itself, or possibly a poor power feed to the starter or poor engine ground. A poor ground or starter positive feed woudl more likely cause a single solid click from the starter when attempting to crank though.

If the starter relay is clicking and no fuses are blown then the next step will be to test for power on the small wire at the starter solenoid with the key in the crank position. If ok, the engine ground and starter positive feed are ok and the engine is physically able to turn then the starter will need to be replaced.
