The car won't start, battery, alternator, starter are all fine. Obviously a computer issue, but I am trying to isolate what started it and what will fix it before I sink a whole bunch of money into it.

Over the past six months, there are many times when the car will not respond at all to starting it, and then after a few minutes will start up. A few have mentioned changing the ignition switch because the wires are prone to break or wear down and lose connection. They said this could cause the problem I am having. Does anyone agree and think that this could ultimately have affected the entire computer system. Now the care won't start at all and I am getting a clicking seemingly coming from right behind the glove compartment.

A clicking is usually caused by low voltage to a relay. They do not like to function with a low voltage condition. I would first try to locate the clicking relay. Under the dash is a panel help in with 2 or 3 7mm screws. Drop that panel, get eh clicking to happen, and feel for the culprit relay and replace it or swap it with another one in that relay center. Put a little silicone grease on the relay blades.
Let me know what happens.
