    I take it you started the car by bumping it ...sounds like starter is jammed ..check to make sure you ignition switch is not sticking on(should be recoiling) and burning out starter

    Those clicks sound like the starter solenoid trying to work but not enough to engage. Could be the solenoid, could also be the battery or associated wiring harnesses.
