You replaced the starter with a new one? OEM or something aftermarket?

A click from the starter itself (not a relay or something inside interior) could mean a solenoid/plunger contact issues. It may unstick after a few key turns or if you can get someone to tap it with a hammer + extension to dislodge while you have the key turned to START.

Make sure the connections are good and tight on the positive terminal and spade (no corrosion) and ground bolt eyelet (top bolt) on starter unit, same with the battery terminals and ground.

If you still have the old one, swap it at worst case.
