This may be related to the antitheft system The system is known for turning off the starter and/or injectors when it fails. Normally when the injectors are turned off, the car will run for a second or two, and then stall. Is there a light on the dash that says SECURITY or a picture of a car with a lock through it? This is a common problem worth looking into. http://www.diy-gm- security.com/ & http://newrockies.com/ When this happened to me i heard the same clicking. It ended up being the failed Theft Deterrent Module which is located under the dash. Mine was just above my glovebox, yours will be above the brake pedal a little bit.
