i have tried using a battery booster to start it and it does not click or turn over.it sounds like it is coming from the firewall.I thought maybe it was the starter but if i am not mistaken it is under the car.this is the first time i had this problem.
thanks wayne

    Clean the battery cables and the post! Now clean them again because you didn'd do it right the first time! Tighten cable clamps good. Now try to crank without jumper box. Post results!
