Answers :

If you get a single click each time you try to start and it's from the front of the car, you most likely have a failed starter motor solenoid. If left for a while, the solenoid contact points can corrode and fail to pass enough current to get the starter motor to engage and then turn. The fix is to replace the starter, but you can often get going temporarily by giving the solenoid a sharp tap with a hammer... if you can get to it! A long metal rod (or screwdriver) placed against the side of the solenoid and then given a sharp tap on the end can relay the hammer effect down to where it needs to go.

If you have multiple clicks from the solenoid with a single turn of the key, then you most likely have a faulty ignition switch.

If you get multiple clicks coming from the rear of the car, you have a different problem altogether and should start by checking the fuel pump and then work forwards through the fuel system.
