Hi mike all I get when trying to start the car is clicking in side and starter motor which is pulsating

Ok the issue that you are having would either be the battery causing this problem or the ignition switch. The ignition switch is where the starter gets its signal and power to turn over. If the battery test good and the starter test good this is a failing ignition switch that is resulting in your issue.
