Question about 1995 Ford Explorer
The first thing to check is that the battery terminal connections are clean and firm. Bad connections here often cause this problem. If you have a problem here and correct it, you still may need to charge the battery and/or jump start the car to get it working again.
If not, then it's either a bad battery, alternator, or starter. Try jump starting it. If that works then it's not the starter. Take it to Autozone, O'Reilly, or something like that and they can test the battery and alternator for you.
If jumping it off didn't work, check the connections on the starter and solenoid to make sure they aren't damaged, loose, or corroded.
The clicking noise is the solenoid switch on the starter. The amount of juice required to start a car is much more than what can be easily or safely routed through a key switch so the key merely provides power to trip the much larger solenoid switch that is capable of handling the current.
