If its just a single click - it could be a starter solenoid / relay problem.
My car is 4.5 years old, have run for 50,000 km.
From last 2-3 days, when I want to start the car, I first hear a single click. Then there is a time delay before the engine is cranked.

What could be the reason?

I changed the battery (the stock battery was 4.5 years old, anyway I was planning to change it in a month or so).

Checked the starting immediately after replacing the battery yesterday; the sound is same. I have not run the car so far on the new battery.

Request your inputs.

Sounds like the solenoid problems. If you can open it then just cleaning the contacts will be enough, else just replace it.
