Is it a rapid clicking? Or just one click every time you turn the key to start?

If it's just one click everytime you go to crank the vehicle, it sounds like the starter is faulty. I would test the starting system. The main cable on the starter should have battery voltage and the smaller solenoid wire should have voltage when the vehicle is being cranked.
