Hello. This is often times a sign of a faulty starter relay. This is a small unit near the starter that directs power from the battery to the starter allowing it to engage the flywheel. When this is faulty, it will cause the clicking sound you describe. If you would like help having this repaired, a certified professional from YourMechanic can come to your car's location to diagnose the starting problem and guide you through repairs.
