The click, click, click every time you turn the key is usually a sign that the starter solenoid no longer works. Sometimes you can sit there and turn the key about 20-30 times and it will start, but it's time to get it checked out. Naturally I'd suggest you first take a multimeter and hook up one end to the positive on the starter solenoid and the other end to a ground and have someone turn the key. If the meter reads 12 volts when the key is turned, then it's the starter solenoid. If it doesn't read 12 volts, then you check the starter relay.

Turn key to "on", put foot on the brake and put lever in neutral. Now move key to "start" while in neutral and it will start EVERY time!
