Turn the key on and jump the big hot wire and smaller wire together on the starter with a screwdriver or something and see if it starts without problems. Don't jump it to the ground wire. If the starter is clicking ignition switch is doing it's job and it might be a defective NEW starter. YES it happens. I always bench test my starters before installing them with jumper cables going from the battery to the starter. Ground the starter with the ground cable and touch the hot cable to the big post on the starter. It should spin right over. If it only arcs it's a bad starter
