Clicking is a sign the battery doesn't have enough power to start the car. You say the battery is charged? Did you have it tested? Over 12.4V? The interior lights will sometimes light, but you need a lot of power to start a car. If it won't start by jumping from another car, a cell might be shorted in the battery. Take the battery out to your local auto parts store for though testing.

You can check the grounds for a good connection. If the battery is over 3 years old, it's probably bad.

Had a good experience in replacing an autozone battery last month. My sister's battery went dead. I pulled it out and went to Autozone for another one. Not knowing if the battery was still in warranty I asked and the salesman said the battery was ten years old. The battery rep was in the store and took a look at it. TEN YEARS OLD he said. Adding, Give the man a free battery, the best we have. I'm taking this one back to the supplier. He's going to want to take this one apart and check it. Over a hundred bucks aint bad.
