Make sure all the battery cables are clean and tight and if all that checks out then the starter could be defective and I know it was rebuilt but that doesn't mean that it was properly rebuilt as a owner of a parts store you can't imagine how many rebuilt starters came back as defective
short answer. Your starter has failed and must be taken out and repaired. Your solenoid clicks when it pulls in and it is suppose to close the circuit from the batteries to the starter motor....I have had mine apart for the same reason repaired the contacts it has lasted about a year and is going bad now
my 2000 cummins has a 20 amp starter solenoid fuse that will cause this to happen
