Have battery and alternator tested....the clicking sound means there's not enough of a charge in the battery to start the car....could be a bad cell in the battery causing it to not hold charge, or the alternator may not be putting out enough of a charge

Thank you so much it was the battery I changed it out its running good now I just didn't understand the battery was not that old really


If it wasn't that old you might still want to get the alternator tested too
