1994 Ford Explorer Will Not Start Just Clicks

I have a 1994 Ford Explorer, went out the other night drove fine everything work normal, no signs of any problems. I came home and turn it off, about 30-45 mins later went out to start it and it would just click once everytime I turned the ignition. I have checked the battery, all connections to the battery, checked the alternator, I changed the starter twice, and still will not start or even turn over. Can anyone help with advice and possibly what it could be, I would really appreciate it, I am confused with what it could be... THANKS

I have a 1993 Ford Explorer. I have been driving it for at least8 months before it stopped running. I went out to my truck to turn it on and It acts like it's sruggling for fuel. I checked the battery and cables everythings fine. Spark plugs new to. someone said it could be a bad fuel filter, fuel regulator or fuel pump. Please Help!!! I need to fix it. Only source of transportation :(

The Cam sensor doesn't do anything but tell your computer when the firing sequence of the motor repeats with the #1 cylinder so it can adjust timing and firing the FAR more common prob is the starter solenoid attached to the starter it can be checked by crossing the leads AND OMG make sure your in park or neutral cuz if solenoid isn't bad it will turn the motor over and if in a gear it will surge forward That's obviously for manual trans like mine

If it clicks when you go to start your truck it could mean #1 bad connection to your battery post, make sure your cables are good and tight and not corroded.#2 It could mean your battery is not holding a charge any longer, You could hook a battery charger to it and try to charge it just in case you left something on like a dome light or something or remove the battery and let your local auto parts store check it out for you.#3 It could mean your altenater is not charging your battery properly, you have a 12 volt battery but your altenater should put out 12.5v to 13v if you get it started you can look at your instrument panel inside cab and see where the needle is on the voltage gauge to see what the altenater is putting out.#4 It could be your starter is no good.Sometimes you have a solenoid stuck and can take a hammer and tap on the bottom to get it to work.Make sure your starter bolts are tight or else bendix will get stuck on the fly wheel due to the starter not being aligned with fly wheel.Remove it and have your auto part store do a bench test for you, and that will let you know if it is good or not. That is pretty much all the reasons why you would hear a clicking noise.

I have the same issue as "james" the first poster (except i have a 93) but i checked it the next day and it started up just fine. I haven't had a chance to take a look at it yet so i did nothing to it... I'm assuming that i should still check the noted issues in the responses but i just wondering if there are any other things i should look into due to it "fixing its self"?
