The car is parked in a parking garage but suddenly, this morning, won't start. It did start/crank. The most recent development is that there is only clicking. I tried pressing the gas pedal down. Wrong move?

I thought the battery was getting weak but not sure. Does mean it might not boost? I read that it can be so many possibilities from fuel pump to various sensors.

Any ideas of what to do now? I'm concerned I might have to tow it if I want to keep using this car. Since, it can be electrical or fuel-related, it is quite difficult to do much where it's parked now.

It's a 98 Sable wagon, LS, with 3.0L V6 OHV 12V.

If it was cranking over and u have just a click now your may have to charge ur battery now. try that first, when u turn your key to on do u hear your fuel pump engage? Could be a very simple fix so start with your basics like checking battery connections for buildup or corrosion, check fuses. If those all check out you need to diagnose if its not getting fuel or spark.
