Make sure that your terminal ends are clean where they contact the battery and make sure that the ground wire connection on the block is good. If the clicking noise is coming from the starter and the battery is fully charged and has been load tested, chances are that the starter solenoid has worn out (replace with starter). If you can turn the engine by hand it is not "locked up" If you can't, changing the starter is a waste of time as you have a far larger problem.
Do what I said and you should find a solution to the problem.
Good Luck!!!.

My 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee only blows hot air. The actuators make a clicking noise. The three actuators that I can see all make the noise but separately. Not sure why one will click and then another.

it must be a sling of air routing valve came off. You have remove the lower panels inside the vehicle and look for shifting parts when the noise occurs. When you find it just put the sling back on the arm - should be ok.

Have your battery checked. If that is not it and it does not click when you try to start it it will probably be a bad starter silonoid.

I have a 2005 jeep grand Cherokee and when i turn the steering wheel it makes a clicking noise i believe it may be the turn signal stick that is rubbing up against the steering, also when i lock and unlock...

The clicking noise is coming from the clock spring in the steering column. The clock spring is the connection between the air bag and lower harness. It should be replaced by a certified technician.

Will not start

Battery is low on voltage. Charge or get a jump. Your alternator is probably bad.

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Problem

I would start by checking all the fuses under the hood.
There is a fuse called IOD which the factory leaves out and gets put in at the dealer.
That fuse could be bad.
