if you are getting unusual flickering and clicks in the dash when you try to start the engine, this is a very strong indication of a weakened battery.
Before doing anything else, try to supplement the battery power either with a charger, with jumper cables to another vehicle, or swapping in a known good battery from another vehicle. It is highly unlikely that you will have anything other than a weak battery situation (be it from age or from some drain on the battery) to cause this behavior.
