That clicking noise is your starter, your battery is dead or severly drained and when you try to start you car, your starter selnoid is trying to turn over, but doesn't have enough juice to get it going, so it's making that clicking noise. If you have a old, dead battery, it is time to replace it, if it's new and only been drained for exmaple leaving headlight on etc... then you can try to jump your camry with a jumper cable through another vehicle. Let it the car run for about 30 min or so to have it charge. You can also take it to autozone, advance auto part and have them charge for free or test it.
I'm guessing that you hear the clicking noise when you try to start it and it doesn't start? A repeated clicking noise is a good sign that the battery is to weak to turn the engine over. If you can get it to start with a jump start than you just confirmed the battery was dead.
Sounds like a dead battery issue. If someone can jump start you with battery cables connect red to red post on battery and black to your car frame or other ground. If the car starts easily it indicates a discharged battery. Then you need to determine why the battery is discharged. If you can drive to a local autoparts store they can use a machine to do a battery and charging system diagnosis at the curbside. Autozone, Advance, or Oreilly all do this. If the battery is the original from the car when purchased it is probably time to replace it. If its a new one (2 years or less) the culprit may be the alternator. The clicking noise is a dead give away that its a battery or alternator issue. The clicking by the way is the starter trying to engage and turn motor over to crank it. Its not getting enough power to turn the engine over (a tough task) and is clicking.
It's either a dead battery or loose/rusty battery terminals, try to pour hot water on battery terminals and then tighten them if loose, if still it doesn't start and keep clicking and if you had the battery for more than 4 years then install a new battery (you can get a good one for around $50, don't buy expensive ones they do the same job).
Hope it helps and please don't forget to rate the answer it helps me with my general ratings, thanks!
The clicking noise is usually the sign of a dead battery. No gauges or noise could mean a REALLY dead battery. Check battery connections to make sure they are clean and tight. Have u tried to jump start it? U can take the battery to a parts store where most will check it's condition for free. So check this 1st and let me know what u find. If that's not it, we can continue.
