Q: Won't start on 1999 Honda CR-V

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
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.
