    Both my keys have the black plastic around them. The one that broke had a white plastic inside. Even though my other is exactly the same could the antitheft still block it from starting?

Some of the Ford Keys DO have an antitheft chip in them. so this may very well be your problem... If your other key doesn't have a big plastic Ford scripted head on it, then it's most likely not going to accomodate the antitheft device.
Also the "clicking sound" you mentioned, may be a simple drained battery and it's got enough power to run the lights, but when you turn the motor over it just clicks... Very typiccal forr this to happen as well. Get a jump start and see if that solves the clicking... Best of luck on this..

    I think if it's the same, it shouldn't be the problem.. Check the battery connections to the cables and make sure they are clean, dry and corrosion free.
