Sounds to me that you may have a bad electrical connection somewhere. Make sure that the battery cable connections are clean and tight at the battery, engine ground and at the starter. Also check the small ground wire that runs from the engine to the car body.

Why won't my car start? no lights interior/exterior.

It seems that the battery is incapable of holding a charge. You might try disconnecting the battery cables and try charging the battery again over night. Reconnect and see if anything works - if nothing works - it's time for a new battery.

I would have the battery, alternator and starter checked. A battery that is old will do the identical thing you described. Climate and age are a big factor on a batteries performance along with the alternator output to keep it charged.

Bcm problem?

This sounds like a you are having a voltage problem. Have the charging system checked. A bad battery or poor alternator output can cause this. When voltage starts dropping below about 9 volts all kinds of crazy electrical things can happen and they can be anything and anywhere.

Sounds like you have a battery issue but could be the alternator wasnt charging it also last u drove and ran the battery down the best way to go is remove the battery from your trunk and take it into either a parts store or battery store and have them test it may take a while as they may have to charge it first to get a valid test so plan on dropping it off early in the day and returning a couple hours later if the battery tests ok after a full charge then reinstall it and should start with a full charge and then return to either your parts or battery store and they should be able to do a on car alternator test

Battery reconnection problems on a ford focus diesel 1.8 tdci

The clicking noise is normal when a battery is almost fully discharged - it's the starter solenoid making the noise. The gauges will react accordingly.
You have to ask yourself why the battery has run down before ordering a new one. Is it very old, is the alternator not charging, is the drive belt loose and so on.
Try putting the battery on charge and if possible remove the top so you can see the acid levels. Top up with distilled water and leave on full charge overnight. Then check and see if bubbles are coming from each cell (do not smoke anywhere near a battery being charged). If no or few bubbles are coming from one cell then the battery is defective. If you think it looks ok then put it back on the car. Get someone to operate the starter and look closely at the battery cells. If one of them is fizzing away then the battery is definitely defective.
However, if all appears well then check the play on the drive belt. If that's ok then consult an auto electrician to carry out a more detailed analysis.

It sounds very much like your battery is discharged, and does not have enough charge left to turn your engine over (the clicking noise is your solenoid trying to engage the starter, but it is not getting enough power to do so). The fact that your various little lights work does not indicate that you have nearly enough of a charge in the battery to start the car.

I think that if you have your battery charged (or replaced, if necessary), that will solve your problem. You might take the battery to Autozone or a place like it and have them check it for taking a charge (I don't think that charge for that).

Hope this helps you.

Intermittent clicking noise from my inop antenna

to stop the noise from returning, simply disconnect the electrical connector near the antenna motor (follow the wires out of the unit). this unit may be disassembled and thoroughly cleaned (especially the copper electrical contacts) to restore it to near new condition sometime in the future....about 3 to 4 hours for a novice.the clicking is due to the motor "coming alive" when an electric signal can get through the oxidized contacts. prolonged "clicking" may not harm the unit...there is some chance the antenna's nylon gear track has separated...try to pull up on the antenna itself after disconnecting car battery. if it cannot be pulled up, then chances are good for earlier described restoration. if motor housing looks VERY corroded, a full replacement of unit is best sol'n.
