Could be the relay or bad battery cable connection at the battery or relay.
Usually when a starter solenoid/relay switch is bad, you will hear only a click and the starter will not spin (crank).
On the starter. It's actually a PART of the starter. If it's not engaging at all, (no click) it could be the keyswitch, a dirty or loose connection or the neutral lockout switch.
It can be a dead battery, or a bad starter, the click sound you hear is from the starter relay mounted on the inner fender near the battery, use a test lite and make sure power is coming out of the relay and going to the starter, always replace both the starter and relay if either is found to be bad
Batteries don't "click," but other parts do. If you're hearing that "click," it's probably the starter solenoid trying to engage. Either the battery's charge is low, the starter solenoid has failed, or the starter motor itself has failed. On some older cars, especially Fords, the "click" could also be a remote starter relay.

Make sure the relay is supplying the 12 volts to the starter - if so remove the starter and go get a rebuilt on to replace it or learn how to repair it yourself.
Do you have any click in the starter itself but still not turning over? Then its the starter giving you fits. Replace it. If no click is heard then it could be a fuse or more likely the starter relay. Check them both before moving to the starter.
Could be the starter relay
It sounds like the starter relay is the clicking sound. Check to see if power is leaving the relay when the switch is turned to starting mode.
It may be possible that the wire connections on the starter or battery are broken or corroded. It could be your starter relay. Or your starter should be tested to see if it needs replaced.

If a starter relay or solenoid is bad, usually you will only hear a single click when you turn the key to start the engine.
It could be a starter problem....can you tell where the click is coming from? is it the started clicking, or a relay clicking?
The starter relay is on top of the starter.
Have someone else turn the key while you listen for a "click" from the relay.
try haveing the relay/solinoid checked. mostly i think you may need to replace the relay. the relay clicking usually is a sign its dieing.
A single click and no response from the starter usually indicates a faulty starter relay/solenoid switch. It could also be a loose connection on the battery cable.
Which relay is the starter relay on a 1994 buick lesabre
starter relay replace starter relay I am not sure but you may have to replace the starter
Check the starter and the cable from the starter to the starter relay. Also, the relay itself. Could be any of these.
The starter relay is built on the starter.
Battery down, starter motor, engine seizure. If you roll it in gear down a hill and let the clutch out does the engine turn over = not seized. Does it start = battery has charge but not sufficient to turn starter. Either battery shot (try restarting after a run) or starter needs overhaul/replacement. My First thought is starter motor brushes or starter relay. Actually, if your battery is not the problem you could simply need to replace the starter relay.
The starter relay on a 1994 Chevy Silverado is mounted on the starter. The starter and relay are usually changed as a single unit.
The starter relay is inside the starter. You will need to replace the starter.
when we turn the key nothing happens someone suggested the starter relay. where is the starter relay or what is it?
