Your battery probably isn't holding enough of a charge. I bet if you get a new battery your problem will go away. Alternatively, it could be that your starter is going bad and you need the extra power to get it going, but my guess is the battery.

Car getting started then cuts off after 2 seconds.Its starter related issue.Either the starter is faulty or battery to starter connection is loose or got short in between.It has to be checked and replaced.Get the voltage checked from battery to starter.The battery should show 12 volts if fully charged.

You have a solenoid on your starter. The solenoid is what you most likely hear clicking. The battery seems to be fine from your info. The starter can be repaired with a new solenoid. It really depends on who you go to and what the charge is to repair. The battery sends power to the solenoid, the solenoid kicks power to the starter to turn the starter for your engine to start. Good Luck

Check the cable connections. Make sure they are clean and a tight metal to metal contact.
Check starter relay with an ohmmeter to make sure it's good.
A part store will test battery, starter, and altenator for free in or out of the vehicle.

The check engine light is interesting considering everything else is out. I would go to the fuse panels and trace power to the ignition switch. Other than the check engine light, this seems to be most likely.
