Sounds like your battery is very low. that clicking is your starter trying to work. but without enough power the pinion on the starter can't activate to crank the engine over. have the battery and alternator checked if possible.

My gas gauge has been stuck completely horizontal for awhile until lately. Now it flickers like crazy all over the place and i hear a little clicking behind the instrument panel when it does. It goes extra...

Well, considering that the fuel gauge is an electrical device, I would say that is most definitely an "electrical problem". The challenge is to locate where the elecrical problem originates from.

A ground circuit is defiately a possibility. The instrument cluster shares a common ground with many different components. The main ground for the IPC is at the rear of the right cylinder head. This ground is shared with the window motor circuits. Also there is a splice that is shared is is S246 and is located in the main instrument panel wiring harness approximately 37cm to the right from the steering column breakout.
-Or you could just have a bad instrument cluster. The printed circuits have been known to deterriorate and lose contact with certain components, including the fuel gauge.

Instrument panel needles goes nuts back and forth then stop sometimes all at once, sometimes only one or two. all or most of the lights on instrument panel come on like ABS, BRAKE, BATTERY, ENGINE STAYS...

same thing happens with my 2000 windstar, if you could take the instrument panel out, and unscrew the the back of the instrument panel that covers the circuit board and clean the circuit with a brush, pure bristle brush is best 'coz they're stiff and gets all the dust that accumulated on the circuit board. some dust particles contain conductive material and shorts the circuit board and cause the trouble you have, ever since i did that no more trouble. and to those who are planning of replacing your instrument panel should do this first. it'll save you money. by the way i am a mechanic

Electrical Problem and now won't start

One common problem is with intrument cluster solder joints where the cable connector attaches to the circuit board. Solder joints fracture. Resolder. Use Hanes manual to get dashboard apart.

Indication is instrument panel goes dead and car sometimes will not start.

Other possibilites are loose connectors or poor connections in cable harnesses.
