You replaced the starter? How do you know the battery has enough power? Did you test it with a volt meter? There is a huge difference between 13.4V and 14.1V in terms of cranking amps. You might also have a bad wire. The clicking is the starter not being able to turn over the motor.

A rapid clicking noise is usually the sound of not enough to cranking amps from you battery, as stated above dirty cables or loose connections can cause this but most times it is a failed battery, most parts stores can test you battery if you just take it in. If it is your battery and you have replaced it and it starts and runs then have the charging system checked, you don't want your new battery failing due to under or overcharging.
