Hello, my name is***** single click usually means the starter has failed. First verify battery voltage holds at least 11v while trying to start, if so monitor battery voltage on both wires going to starter while trying to start. If both wires show at least 11v while trying to start then replace the starter. Let me know how it goes or if you have more questions, thanks.
