Need more info....does the engine actually run and make the noise or will it just make a loud clicking noise without starting the engine?

A clicking noise at cranking is generally a starter solenoid kicking in/out and can be caused by not enough battery power going to the starter or the return path to the battery from the starter.

Some causes are dirty battery connections at the posts and cables, dirty connections at the other end of the battery cables, cable itself being too small of wire size, or battery not having enough charge - either battery is too small, too old, or not receiving enough charge, either low recharge voltage or not enough time.

I suggest to externally charge the battery for a couple hours and see the results.
