Take your battery to local parts store, and have it load tested, the click you hear is starter solenoid trying to engage with low voltage. if battery test good drop starter, have starter and solenoid tested shack

yeah, try starter fluid just to verify if it;s fuel or spark related. If it starts or tries to, then it's a fuel problem. You should be able to hear your pump turn on, when you turn key on, may need to stand by tank, when someone turns key on. it should activate for about 2 seconds, with key on.(that's to pressurize your system with gas) then when cranking, the pump should run(may not hear it then-so just listen when key is initially turned on. No noise: your pump may not be working. If you can hear the pump, it may be another issue.
This is probably the ignition lock cylinder worn out or getting old. The TDM is most likely not locking the key in, but new cars are pretty tied into themselves. For now, just try leaving the key in. Use another one for the doors. Some cars have a small hole under the steering wheel/column that you can stick a pen or something in to release your key. Maybe just be ready for something else breaks, then you'll know what is wrong.
is the security light blinking on the dash? If so you need to rreprogram the key to the anti theft module. to do this, turn key to on...let sit for about 10 min or so until the security light flashes. turn key off.. count o 5. vehicle should start. if not then it will have to go to the dealer to have it specifically reprogrammed as the PCM and anti theft modules both no longer reconize the key code.
Check connections at battery cables,should be tight & not be able to move cables.Check for corrosion at battery terminals.Also I have seen problems at the inside fuse block where a terminal burns causing similar concerns as yours.Hope this helps
