If when you turn the key and it only clicks but doesn't start the car, it's most probably your starter has given out. I had the same thing happen to my car about 4-5 months ago... I'd turn the key... everything on the instrument panel would turn on... but wouldn't start the car... only made a clicking sound everytime I'd turn the key... I went to Pep Boys the next morning and told the guy there my problem and he told me that he was 99% sure it was my starter... and he was right on the money.

Take a large object (eg big screwdriver) and give the starter a good whack. It might start, but it probably won't start again a second time. Atleast you won't have to tow the car.

My wife's '97 Grand am did that on monday night, turned out the battery only had a surface charge and was actually bad, took a little while on the load tester to verify that. I thought for sure the starter was just too hot or something, or that if the battery was bad that the alternator was the culprit, since the atlernators on 3.1L chevy's are known for going bad. (The thing has cowl induction cooling ductwork for the alternator. I just gets too hot and goes bad). But sure enough it was the battery.
