When key is turned the starter is energized by a solenoid that applies power directly from the battery to the starter. Any loose connection will prevent the starter from turning over. The solenoid can also have burnt spots on the contacts inside case that will prevent current from getting to the starter. A click noise is the solenoid energizing so
if all connections are tight and the battery is good the only
other problem is the starter may be bad. Brushes on the
starter may have seen their life ended. this is usually identified by tapping on starter with a hammer while trying to start engine. If starter spins, replacement is needed.

Unless it was a sound of your valves beating the top of the motor that is one of the most normal sounds for any operational engine is the click the clicking you hear it's going to be electricity going through your coils so it's pretty normal if you have a distributor base system that would be different I'm pretty sure your car is a OBD2 so it would be a coil base system so I wouldn't worry about it

The thermistor is in the winding of the blower motor. Letting it cool down will let it run, but probably not long. the thermistor is not replaceable, replace blower motor

If the engine won't crank, check the condition and tightness of the battery leads, particularly the black earth where it connects to the engine block/bodywork. Loosen and tighten each connection in turn.

An engine that won't crank is a classic symptom of a 'bad earth' .

If the engine cranks slowly this is also a symptom of a bad earth/cable - or a defective battery.

Can you get a friend or neighbour to boost-start your car? If, after cleaning and checking the battery lead connections the car is still sluggish in cranking and won't start - suspect a faulty battery.

Will your car start with a boost-start? Most workshops will do a free battery check for you.
