Clicking starter, I tried replacing the starter, tried replacing the battery, both successful and both g o o d, car still won't turn over. All I hear is a clicking like the battery is dead when I try to start it. Tried remote starting it ) jumping the solenoid) and got nothing but sparks.

That was my thought. I had to order a chilton's for it, so I can find the relay, and the specs for it and try to get it replaced

Did you manually crank the engine to test if it is seized?

When it sparks using remote method, it means a fault with the starter. Check the main cable for proper installation. You could have a faulty replacement unit.
