I was vacuuming inside car for 20 minutes, battery drained. When turned key nothing. After 45 minutes lights, radio, and battery make clicking sound. Do I get charging service or wait and see what happens?
Do you

Hi,

If you ran it that low, it will need to be recharged. Here is a link that explains how it's done. The clicking you are now getting is the result of the battery coming back, but it won't get to full power again.

If there is some charge left, you can try having the vehicle jump started and then allowing it to run for at least 30 minutes. The alternator should bring it back if running.

Here is a link showing how that is done:

Let me know if this helps or if you have other questions.

Take care,

Joe
