Clean the battery terminals and cable terminals. Hook battery back up. Try to start again (with or without jumping). If it starts , make sure the charging system is working. If you have a voltmeter (or gauge in car dash). You can drive to autozone, Oreillys or most auto parts and they will check the battery and charging system free of charge.
will try to help. if your engine isn't getting a full 12 volt charge to your battery it will do crazy stuff,like the guages rolling all the way around and different lights will come on. i suggest you have the battery checked,also check your altenator. if you're near an autozone or advance auto parts store, they will check both altenator and battery for free.after your car dies, you let it sit for say,2hours and then it starts, battteries will sometimes build their charge up own their own, but usually only enough to drive for very short distances. that should explain your next question,why does it restart after it sits for awhile? hope this helps and as always thank you for choosing fixya.com
The clicking sound is a sign of a drained battery. Check your battery cables for loose or corroded terminals, if everything OK, jump start the vehicle and take it to an AutoZone, Checkers or similar auto parts store to have your Starting/Charging System checked. They perform this test free of charge.

When your car battery goes dead for no apparent reason, Occasionally something is drawing power that’s not of your doing. This is a parasitic draw, and it can cause the same result as leaving the headlights on. To read more on this type of battery drain please visit my blog
check to make sure the alternator is charging the battery.crank engine while idling the alternator out put should be 13.5 volts to 14.5 volts. if not alternator is not charging the battery.if alternator is charging battery.the battery is weak.if its over 5 years old its more likely battery.if battery not old checks out good .replace battery cables..
Hi. this is defiantly a slow or major drain that is occurring within this vehicle. Here is a test that you can preform that will help you find this battery drain so you can illuminate this issue.
--BATTERY DRAINAGE TEST PROCEDURE--
Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other
end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow
or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably
normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there
is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the
fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the
drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.
