If the starter cranks over fine with a jump start, then it appears the starter is just fine. Are you getting this clicking sound when jump starting it or when not?
If not, the clicking sound is because of the drained battery.
You should get the charging system tested to make sure the alternator is working.
If it is, and the battery continues to drain like over night or after a few days, then you have a short circuit somewhere. Then you would need to disconnect the negative battery cable, install a DC ammeter. Inline and make sure you get no more than a 50mA reading with everything turned off and the key removed. If it is more than 50mA, that is 0.050 amps, then start pulling the fuses one at a time, leave them out and continue until the ammeter drops safely below 50mA, then hook the battery backup, remove the ammeter and now make sure everything on that fuse's circuit does work, cause that may give you a clue as to what is shorted.
