That all depend WHAT click you hear ...

- HUGE click: the solenoid pulls but its contact doesn't close; starter does not run
- HUGE click: the solenoid pulls, make contact but there is no + at terminal 30; starter does not run
- Little click: the T18 relay pulls but the solenoid doesn't: broken wire (terminal 50), blown fuse (F35), ignition + missing or relay T6 not closing

Re: Starter Motor problem

Earth faults and starters has been covered massively on this forum as it affects almost all fiats, its usually an engine earth, the earth wire from the battery to the car body and the front of the gearbox. This wire breaks or corrodes and the car won't start despite everything seemingly being ok.

There are earth points all over the car and depending on the fault you're having depends on where you need to look, better to start a thread explaining the problem you're having then someone can point you in the right direction.
