Have you tried to tap on the starter my buddys starter went out and he thought it was the batteries but wasnt..and from what i remember it did the same thing..i got him to turn the headlights on and try to crank it and they didnt dim so that told me it wasnt the batteries

If it clicks and doesn't crank then it's your starter.
