I had the battery checked and it appears cables are clean and tight. I also just replaced the starter I don't have a meter and not sure how to use 1.

Not being able to use a multimeter or having one is going to be difficult to trouble shoot it. Do you have a test light and know how to use one?So the battery tested good?So whats clicking and whats blinking?

I can get one, isn't it for checking continuity? I put 1 in the hot and 1 in the negative and if it lights up I have a curcuit? I can also get a multi-meter if needed. I can also get an auto anaylizer, which would be best for my purposes. The lights around the climate control and radio area are blinking and I think also doing the clicking. I tried turning the key on and off 3 times to find codes on the instrument panel but don't see anything.

A test light is the easiest to use you would be hooking the aligator clip to ground and using the other end to to find power your best bet would be a test light to start with.

I bought a curcuit tester. The clicking and blinking is definitely comming from the clock, casstte area, radio pwr on off and the climate control ****s. The gauges all seem to work and the power windows as well. I won't be able to do anything until next weekend.
