The click sound here is dead battery again , how old is your battery, has been replaced recently or do you know?

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

It does sound as if the battery may be dead again. The battery may be dying while the engine is running due to the charging system not functioning.

Do you get a rapid clicking from the engine compartment when trying to start the engine?
