Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

You could have a few things going on. If you get a single click from the starter then there is a good chance the problem is the starter itself. It could also be a cable or connection issue. I'm assuming that the engine ran fine before this. If it had died while driving then that would leave the possibility of an internal engine issue preventing it from turning.

Was it running find previously?
