Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! A single click from the engine compartment when trying to start the engine is almost always caused by a failed starter solenoid. What you'll need to do is verify the engine ground and starter positive source are good. If so and there is power on the small wire at the starter solenoid with the key held in the crank position and the starter does not engage then the starter will need to be replaced, provided the engine is able to physically turn.
