First I'd definitely start with the apparent. When you hear that clicking noise, try to locate th relay that is clicking. Replace it with a known good relay. Also, to be on the safe side, make sure the battery is at 100% charge. Then let me know.

No problem. I've seen this clicking on Chrysler vans before due to weak batteries. Glad we could help.
