When I turn the key to start the car, it won't start. The lights on the dashboard all come on. There is a clicking noise when I try to start it. The car does not turn over or even "ignite".

Have you had the bad battery tested and made sure the battery cables are clean and tight?Also do you have a multimeter?

Check starter operation, the click is often the starter solenoid engaging but no starter operation, get the starter motor checked out first.
