Won't start on 1999 Honda CR-V

My CRV wouldn't start last night. Turn the key and get one click. Plenty of battery reserve, but tried jumper cables just in case they allowed it to start. No difference. Have had no prior issues like this. Any ideas?

Turn on your head lights if they are bright it is most likely that the starter solenoid has failed which is part of the starter motor. It is typical failure of a solenoid, you hear the click because the starter solenoid contacts and plunger fail and cannot pass the heavy starter motor current to the starter motor.
