A little spark is normal,just the power going to the computer. A huge spark is a shorted wire,probably an over tightened positive terminal that cracked the plastic insulator on the alternator, or a bad alternator out of the box .

I have a Chrysler 1997 lhs wont start clicking noise replaced alternator and starter cleaned terminals PLEASE HELP I AM LOST

Quick question: did you remember to put in a new battery? Usually, a clicking noise indicates that the battery is way down and cannot provide enough juice to fire the solenoid that fires the starting motor.

The starting motor is a small electric device that engages the crankshaft and turns it so that your vehicle's cylinders are charged with fuel and air. Then, the cylinder that is a top dead center fires and the ignition process begins.
