Your ignition switch is going bad. The strange noise is the starter remaining engaged and locked to the flywheel. Your best bet is to have the starter tested at your local auto parts store, to deduce that it is not, in fact, your starter.
may be your alternator is gone, when the car is running the battery is out and the alternator takes over, so is got to be your alternator, try to restart your car and if it runs disconect the negative cable from your battery if the car dies the alternator is bad.
Since you ran out of fuel, it's possible your car pulled sediment at the bottom of the tank into the system. I would recommend changing the fuel filter. The clicking noise is due to the battery being 'flat'. You need to charge it, and depending how quickly it went flat after trying to start (if it went flat after a few minutes of attempting to start) I would have the battery checked for it's condition, as it may be time to replace it. In the US you can get a free check of the battery condition at parts stores, with the battery in or out of the car, not sure about where you live though. Good luck, let me know what you find.
Take your truck to your local Auto Zone and aske them to test your alteranter. They will do this at no charge. If you can "jump" it and it starts ok, I bet the alt is bad. Check it out, costs nothing but your time!
that sounds correct and its probably electric and in the tank. turn the key to the start position then listen for a small humming noise coming from gas tank if theres no sound then thats most likely the problem.
