Battery is too low to energize the starter. Either battery is dead, or cables are dirty/bad connection. The rapid click is the starter solenoid chattering from low voltage.

How old is battery? Do you have a voltmeter to check the battery voltage when you turn key to start? Has to stay above 8 volts DC.
