So my next suspect would be a faulty starter motor,
That's assuming the "click" your hearing is the starter solenoid.
Though on that vehicle the solenoid is controlled by a relay in the box under the bonnet.
If your competent then a good test for the starter is run a jump wire from the battery pos+ and touch it to the smaller terminal on the starter motor.
If all is good the jump wire will trigger the solenoid and spin the starter over.
If not then the starter is needing tested.
