I only get a single loud click whn I try to start my car. What could be the cause?

* The battery is less than a year old and all terminals/connections are good.
* I replaced the solenoid and still have the same problem.
* The starter was replaced once about (4) years ago.

    I'm able to turn the crankshaft from the front with a wrench. If it was seized, I'm not sure that it would turn.
