i've had that problem a few times and thumping/jiggling the fuse box and wires coming out of it fixed the problem for me.

commonly, the points in the relay get dirty and the magnet clicks but no proper electrical connection is made.. either replace it or take is apart and clean it.

good luck

sometimes a bad starter would also cause it to click, but more than likely it's the starter relay, under the seat, behind the battery. put the key in, turn it to "on" and touch the + & - sides with a screwdriver on the relay, maybe it'll start.

This happened to me on my 93, after checking everything I decided to pull the junction box off and drilled out the plastic rivets and took the thing apart. After inspection found a burnt spot on the board, cleaned it with rubbing alchol, and hooked it back up, and the damn thing started. Mine was clicking, you could jump @ the solonoid, but it probably will not have spark. If it doesnt it is going to be the junction box.
