Question about 2005 Nissan Frontier
You either have a bad connection at the battery terminals or your battery is on it's way out. It is clicking because there is enough amps to activate the starter solenoid, but not enough amps to rotate the starter.

SOURCE: s-10 won't start
The snap sound is the solanoid on the starter. you need to look at the starter and see if the big red wire correded off the starter. also check the ground wire going to the front of the engine as they also like to corrode/loose connection. check your battery voltage at the battery and at the starter on the big red wire.check these while cranking the engine with some help from a friend. if all these look ok then you probably just need a starter.

the clicking noise is the starter solenoid, the heavy electrical contacts that supply 12 volts to the starter are burnt, you will either need to replace the starter slenoid contact set or the solenoid.

If you have a tape cassette player in the dash, this can cause a sound like what you are describing. Even though a tape is not in it,,, it can still freak out and cause this sound. Had this happen on several of my old vehicles. Let us know if this helps. Leave feedback for others to see. Thanks.

Get your battery checked for charge level. If it is under 10 volts the vehicle won't start properly. It may be a problem with the ignition relays. I have been told those can be a problem with this type of vehicle. Of course, it could be something simple like corrosion on the battery terminals or a bad starter solenoid.
