Question about 1997 Ford F150 Regular Cab
Verify your battery is in a good state of charge and the terminals are clean.
I suspect your starter solenoid is what you hear clicking. It is mounted on the starter.
Check for corroded terminals on the solenoid and pay close attention to the braided wire that leads into the starter from the solenoid as they tend to rot and lose continuity.
The bolts that retain the starter to the transmission also are the ground point. Verify they are tight and clean.
If those items are good you will need to replace the starter.
