This is a common ignition problem. Use a DIY test button push start. I would guess that your key ignition is broken like mine. Currently my Z will start with no key and run and drive. I remove the battery cable when parked.

Below it sounds like he has no prior knowledge of the Z cars.

Have you checked the motor isn't seized? Can you turn it over by hand at the pulley?

When 1997 Saturn sl starter clicks?

The single click, that you hear when the starter switch is operated, is the solenoid making the high tension connection to the starter motor. If the starter motor doesn't turn over, you will need to check both the battery feed to the solenoid and the feed from the solenoid to the starter motor (this is typically a short length of braided cable). I have known this cable to corrode through. If it has, the easiest remedy, is to replace the entire starter motor.

Start just clicks charged battery an jump?

Typically this signifies that your starter motor has either jammed, or is faulty. To check that it has not jammed, give it a whack on the end with a small hammer, or fairly large wrench. If that does the trick, then the starter motor was jammed, if not, you need a replacement starter motor.

1972 Mustang won't start after the starter solenoid has been changed it doesn't click when the ignition is turned what could be wrong with it?

Solenoid could be installed incorrectly. Could be electrical connection on the solenoid. Did you re-connect the battery? Could be a bad starter motor...or a stuck starter motor. Sometimes a light tap or two on the starter motor (not the solenoid) with a hammer will free it up.

Why wouldn't a 1991 Volvo 240 start after having the starter replaced?

I would definitely check your starter relay. If that is not the problem, I would guess you have a break somewhere in the small wire that goes to the starter motor. You can check this with an ohm meter. High mileage Volvo's experience lot of wire harness related problems due brittle insulation and lots of motor shake (from worn motor mounts).
