That clicking sound is what your starter solenoid sounds like when powered by a weak battery.
It should start with a jump.
The real questions are: How did it get weak? Will it recover?
Instead of performing a bunch of tests, why don't we take the path of least resistance. Get someone else to do them.
After you get it running, go to an auto parts store. They love to perform free tests in the hope that you will buy something. If it less than 15 minutes away, drive around a bit to let it recharge.
Ask if they can run a 'Load Test' on your battery. A load test is a voltage test with a twist. It simulates the load put on your battery by a starter turning over an engine.
There are an unambiguous Pass or Fail.
Pass means the battery is good.
Fail means your battery can't hold a charge and needs to be replaced.
What luck!! You're at an auto parts store. ;)

The starting issue is the same I had on my 2005 Grand Cherokee. The wire coming from the ignition (key area) to the Starter the connection is bad. The shop replaced the lead and it is perfectly fine... it cost $70. I dont know the techincal terms.. but it was easy to fix- the problem is water and junk gets splashed up by the front tire and corroded the wire into the sarter.... that's all it was.
