2006 GM Montana: How to replace Starter Solenoid?

When the ignition is turned ON,just a one click noise is head and nothing else.

Just give a quick double check to the connections at the solenoid, looking for any loose, broken or damaged wires. If the visual inspection checks ok, replace the starter.
