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

Why does your car battery click but not start?

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.

What could be wrong with 1983 harleydavidson motorcycle not wanting to turnover with pushbutton.IT WILL ONLY CLICK?

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.
