Could be the battery. Is the battery old? Terminals tight? Are you getting power to the starter?

I checked the terminals, theyre tight, also i just replaced the battery a few months ago so i didnt check it, and it does click every time i try and start it, but its just one click, it doesnt really sound like the battery:-/

another thing i forgot to mention is that after the initial fail, i left it alone for a few hours, came back and tried it again and it started, turned it back of then retried it, and it wouldnt start again. :|

Sounds like it's a bad starter or solenoid. You'll have to verify that power is getting through the solenoid and to the starter.

With the key in the start position put a test light or multi-meter on the positive leg going to the starter. If you have power the starter is bad.
