Coming out? None
You should have a starter draw of about 250-300 amps during cranking. Disconnect the fuel or ignition system and crank for several seconds to get a good reading.

Fix my ford ranger

Have the battery load tested. Sounds like while the battery has the 12 volts to run the lights it does not have the Amps to turn the starter. The clicking is from the starter solinoid.

Ticking sound no power had battery tested battery is fine

If the battery is good then it is possible the contacts at the bottom of the starter solenoid have failed. The clicking sound is the solenoid trying to make contact.

1989 Ford F-150 won't start

I have found that Ford products are very sensitive to poor grounds and poor connections at the battery or starter/ starter solenoid. Clean all grounds and terminal connectors really through. Don't just look and judge them to be clean. After market add on battery clamps will corrode where you put the cable into them. Be sure to take them apart and clean there also. Also ck to be sure your battery is putting out the cranking amps it is
rated at. If not sure take it to a shop and have it tested. Good luck.
