A continuous clicking means that there is not enough current to energize the solenoid. That means either the battery is low or the cables are not making good contacts. Prior to replacing the battery, remove your existing battery from the vehicle and have it tested at a parts store. Most of them do this for free. Ask them to do the test a couple of times, and make sure that you get the same amperage every time.
As you are removing the battery, look for signs of corrosion on the terminals and in the battery cables. Are the cables tightly attached to the post. Plastic coverings? Take them off. They are there just to look pretty, they do nothing.
