Have you tried jump starting it? Sounds like its just a dead battery.

Have the battery tested. If it is ok, then you probably have a bad cable or connector.

Sounds like a starter or starter solenoid.

I see. What else have you done and not told us about? You have to give us a complete picture here, not one sentence that tells us nothing.

then your starter is toast go replace it and you should start.

also have you put a test light on your main power wire and little wire going to your solenoid???

i'm still holding to sayin you need a new starter

If you properly bypassed the solenoid and still just clicks than what colinS said is 100% .... Starter

Bypassing the solenoid mearly rules out the solenoid as the culprit. It could be the starter, any of the electrical connections, or the cable.
