When turning key but there is a constant clicking sound from under the dash thought battery bad but changed it out, believe it may be a security issue don, t hear the door chimes either also on the dash is a lock that is locked, don, t know if this is right till it starts or not, have not had the car just a few months

Did you try another key? It has a chip inside the key.

I think the clicking is from some of the relays that are energized under the dash.
Anyway, it may be a starter motor failure. You need some help from a shop to confirm.
Did you get any warranty with this purchase?
