    I don't think that it would click with a safety screwed up. Try jumping across the solenoid, could be a bad solenoid. Check for loose wiring and grounding points. Also check the starter cable connection. Good Luck

    Could be a weak battery as well, if the above solenoid short fails try a jump start.
