I went out to start my car this morning and boom dead. It has a new battery and alternator in it but still died. Jumped it for awhile and lights turned all on but everything was flickering and then it didn't turn over at all just a clicking sound. Any ideas?

Starter and/or cable or a ground issue. The starter does not have a ground wire as it is grounded to the block by it's mounts. By that I mean battery to block and chassis ground. Other possibilities are solenoid/relay

Clicking sound is a sign of a dead battery. Enough to turn on the light and flicker, but not enough to start teh car. I suggest you look into the wiring like David suggested as you might have a draw/drain on the battery.

Yeah, Tom I only said that because he said new battery, but we both know "new" can still be dead. Thanks Tom

If your battery is not holding a charge overnight, something is draining it. Here's a good video about finding what the cause is. How To Perform a Parasitic Draw Test - EricTheCarGuy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KF1gijj03_0&feature=player_embedded
