do you have a test light and some electrical skills?

it sounds like the starter motor has failed ( the solid single click indicates the starter is receiving power but the motor itself cannot spin or has a dead spot that will not allow the motor to turn the engine over)

if you have UNDER 36,000 miles the repairs should be covered under the basic warranty even if you are slightly over the 36k you should be able to get some assistance in the repair
