Hello! Let's see if we can can work together to get to the root of your question!

What does battery voltage do when you turn to start and you get the click? If it drops , to 9 volts or such, the starter is trying to turn the engine. Can you manually turn engine with wrench? If there is no voltage drop, the solenoid is not engaging the starter, and the starter or solenoid may be bad.
