My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. From the description you have provided, I assume you have bypassed the ignition switch to determine that the battery and starter are good. If so, and if you are turning the key and only hearing a click, I believe the starter relay is probably at fault. I recommend having your vehicle’s starting problem diagnosed and repaired by a certified technician, such as one from YourMechanic.
