Is the cable working properly ? It could be seized along an area up to the rear brakes. You may have seized hardware at the rear brakes. Or could have worn out park brake pads or shoes. If you have sued the leaver constantly, you may have a stretched cable.
the clicking you hear is the shift interlock releasing this is normal,i just posted a hopfully useful correction about this same concern,check the button on the pedal that the brake switch plunger rests on it maybe cracked hope this helps good luck
The gear selector is locked until the system detects the brake pedal is being pressed, the brake circuit then sends a signal to the shifter release solenoid to pull a pin back and let you shift out of park, this is a safety feature required by federal law, U need to have someone see if the brake lights go on when you press the pedal, if they don't check the switch at the top of the brake pedal, if the brake lights work then the little solenoid is defective.
