Question about 2004 Kia Optima
This click sound is a defective starter solenoid main electrical contacts, don't be fooled by a starter test, this problem can only be caused by the contacts, replace the starter solenoid.

If you know for sure that the starter is ok you need to check the relay and the ignition switch.

open the door and listen for a click from under the car (starter solenoid). If you hear that click, along with the one coming from
the glove compsartment(starter relay), it's the wire between the starter solenoid and the relay...If you only hear the one click from the glove compartment( it's actually in the passengers door pillar), it's the starter relay ($15)

From what you describe it appears that the battery is drained. Jump it to start the engine then measure it's voltage - in a normal functioning case it should have 14,2 to 14.5 volts. If you have lower than that the alternator has failed and it will have to be replaced.
If the voltage is correct then you have a hidden consumer or a short: stop the motor , disconnect the plus cable on the battery and put an ohmmeter to it to measure the resistance between it and the body of the car. Then start disconnection every cable that is attached to it until you find the only one that has a low resistance. Start with the cable that powers the starter, it's usually the one that fails first.
