Question about Cars & Trucks
You need to replace the starter solenoid (part of the starter), the heavy contacts that power up the starter are burnt. This is a common issue.

This sounds like a weak battery or corrosion on the battery cable connections. The sound you hear is the relay and not the cylinoid.

What do you mean by bump started? The lights and radio can work, but the battery may be too weak to crank the engine over. The best thing to do would be to drive it to a parts store, where most offer free check of battery and charging system (if you can drive it. If not, 1st remove battery and bring in for testing). The click you hear is classic low battery symptom, although it can be other things. So, 1st get the free test, and post results back here. How old is the battery? (and answer 2 questions!) Thanks

this is not the security system, it is the starter solenoid, the internal contacts of the starter motor solenoid are burned and eroded, it may strat if you try repeated attempts, but it will need the starter solenoid replaced to correct the problem.
