If the battery cable thing was off, it shouldn't have sparked. Do me a favor, check to make sure the battery cables are clean and tight. The clicking indicated to me that you have a weak battery. Check it out and let me know what you find. Also, most parts stores will test the battery to make sure it is okay.
