NEED HELP! Jeep won't start?!

I was driving yesterday and everything was fine it couple of hours later I want to go to the store and it won't start. I thought it was that security alarm so I tried that, I also tried disconnecting the battery a few times and still nothing. All it does is click once every time I go to turn over the engine. I don't know what it could be! Please help!!

I tried that and still the same thing. It can't be the battery because it's brand new so either ignition/starter or cylinoid? Do you know where those might be?

Whack the starter with a hammer before you remove it...then try it.

Sounds like the starter is beginning to fail, since you say you hear a single click... My '94 had a stubborn NSS, so I had to bump the shifter forward before I tried starting it, but you wouldn't or shouldn't get any click if that was the issue... Smacking the starter with a hammer, as suggested, may do the trick, for now...

Thank you for the input but hitting it didn't do the trick either :/ I'm just going to replace it
