Okay. Before replacing anything, I need you to check something. Have a helper turn the key to the start position while you check for voltage to the smaller wire on the starter. If you are getting 12+ volts to it, then the starter is most likely the cause. If you are not, then there is another problem.
I will admit, the one click sounds like the starter, but it could be the cause of a bad ground too.
Check that and let me know what you find. Also, a weak battery didn't cause the coils to go bad.
Let me know what you find.
