Sorry, I meant my question to mean this. I had both neg. and pos. cables connected to the starter silenoid and it sparked. I then CORRECTED the connection but when I tried to start the car, the starter just clicked, even after a jump start. Question is, would the mix up connection burn up something that would make the starter click when I try to start it? Thanks again.

tear your solinoid apart. You prolly burnt something inside of it. The starter itself should be ok.

Re: Polarity shoudn't be an issue.

"Since a solinoid is JUST A RELAY I doubt if it has any polarity at all?" Norm K. P.S.: If it just clicks without output power to the starter motor, the large contact surfaces inside the solinoid are all burned off. Cheaper to just get another starter motor. And better in the long run. Honda Accords have had this,"Click but no start problem" for MANY years now.
