my 1997 Mountaineer won't turn over. when I turn the key to the on position there is one click and when I turn it off it clicks again. There is power to the dash. I already had the starter and battery tested and they are fine, and I replaced the starter relay. It is an automatic, all wheel drive. It has to be something in the starter system, but I'm out of ideas.

Sounds like the starter is about to give out. Try giving it a few whacks with a hammer to get a little more life out of it. Look into a new one soon.
