The clicking noise is most likly the starter solinoid cycling in and out. This is due to low battery voltage. charge the battery, then have the battery and charging system tested. Some auto supply stores will do this for free for you in the hopes of selling parts

SOURCE: Clicking noise under dash
I would change the oil and filter, including proper weight oil. Then I would test again after sitting overnight. Maybe you'll be fortunate and it was due to an overdue oil change. If it still persists, there might be a problem with a hydraulic lifter draining overnight

When you turn the dial to 4 wheel drive it controls a solonoid unit that then controls the electric motor that shifts the trasfer case to 4X4. The clicking sound that you are hearing is probobly the solonoid unit (4x4 control unit) engaging or trying to engage the trasfer case motor. From what I,ve heard the solonoid unit is located behind the plastic panel that is under the glove box and before the passenger side door. Moisture can build up in that area and ruin the solinoid unit over time. Check any fuses that have any thing to do with the 4x4. If the solonoid unit or fuses is not the problem, I would check the wireing to the electric transfer case motor and the motor itself. Good luck and God bless!

Testimonial: "Thanks for the info.. It actually turned out to be a rotten connector in the wiring harness just before the transfer case. I cut it out and re wired.."
Could be corrosion on the cables, I would clean both cables and try again. if no corrosion I would then look at the battery for correct voltage and fluid. batttery could be bad.
