HI there

This sounds like a problem with the alternator. The battery light will usually come on when the alternator stops charging, then you will only be running off the battery. Once that happens the battery will lose charge and the car will stop running. This leads to the clicking you are hearing while trying to start it.

You are going to have to have the battery charged and the alternator tested to solve this issue.

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.
Just Answer does not compensate me for my time and resources, so please rate my answer by using the stars at the top of the page. Payment for your question includes any follow-up questions you may have. Free trials and subscription questions still require ratings.
