won't start!

Truck just produces a loud clicking coming from the drivers side fender [relay?] when I try to start it. Has a new battery. The headlights come on bright. Just won't turn over at all. What should I check first? Could it be the starter? Or possibly thast relay where the clicking is coming from?
The truck is my sons 97 ranger 6 cyl 150k

Thanks in advance for any help.
