It’s most likely the battery is on its way out. Try jump starting it and if it starts, replace the battery. It has enough to turn the electronics on but not enough to start the vehicle, that’s why you hear the rapid clicks, seen it a thousand times.If my answer has helped you, please help me by rating 3 stars or higher, or accepting my answer. This does not cost you any more, it just allows me to be credited for my work. Feel free to ask further questions after rating/accepting. Thank you!
