Rapid clicking noise, won't start. battery checks out good

Customer Question

rapid clicking noise, won't start. battery checks out good when tested.
JA: Does the battery look like it's leaking? And does it have a strong smell -- like sulfur?
Customer: it doesn't appear so. I had it looked at by Auto Zone
JA: What is the model/year of your Volvo?
Customer: 2004 xc90 6 cyl awd turbo
JA: What year is your Turbo?
Customer: 2004
JA: Are you fixing your Turbo yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: had a diagnostic run when the check engine light came on. tested for a fuel system leak. gas cap cleaned, check engine light went off. When I went to leave work yesterday all I got was a rapid clicking and not enough power to even roll up a window. Jumped the car, but red warning light came on at start up this morning.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: shouldn't a diagnostic detect potential problems like this ? The message on the display only says "Time for regular service" and does not give a specific issue for the warning light. how best to diagnose ?
