If the battery is good but there is no clicking in the start position either the ignition circuit went out or the starter solenoid went out, those would be the first 2 things I would look at. Could also be a loose ground.

First thing I would try is to swap out the starter relay with maybe the horn or AC relay to see if it's just a bad relay.

Also check fuse 8 in PDC and fuse 31 on the junction block.

The Negative battery cable was bad,that's what caused the starter to go out but will have it back tonight....

Was the cable corroded? At least this is what happens many times, but then also all lights dimm at the moment you try to start.

This, typically a battery connection will cause all power to at least cycle when you attempt to start, like key to the on position everything is bright and functioning then when you turn it to start everything shuts off... If this didnt happen it may have been a contributing factor but likely not the problem. Either way the combination of a starter and cable repair (which is common) your going to be good to go!

Re: Starting Problems!!!!!!
The Cable was just worn out towards the battery,But all my lights worked and my battery was good by the meter in the car.But all the lights stayed on when i turned to start it.
