If the engine doesn't turn over, it may be the solenoid not operating and not engaging the dog on the starter motor, if you get a healthy clunk when you turn the key but the engine does not turn, could be seized or there could be a transmission lock issue.
From your description of your problem it seems like your starter may be at fault. It may have a dead spot and the click you are hearing may be the starter solenoid engaging but not power is getting to the actual starter motor. As for the brake lights your brake light switch may have failed.
Some months ago I began starting the engine of my 2001 Chrysler 300M
but turned it of before it really started "was sloppy with the key".
The anti-theft system went on for some unknown reason. I disarmed it by
disconnecting one of the battery connections under the hood with a
wrench. I connected it again, the anti-theft system was off but the
battery was dead. Battery was OK after recharging, I have had no
trouble since then.
