I've been working on my car for about 2 weeks now replacing the radiator, 4 control arms, power steering rack and the pressure and return line. The car now will not start it rapidly clicks when trying to crank but won't turn over. The lights and everything come on on the inside as well with the key in the ON position. The battery and starter are no older than 2 years as well.

My car has 249000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
