Pattylax, as it is your first post here, let me welcome you!

Tell us more about your car: model year, engine, auto or manual transmission, etc.

Without further information, my first guess is weak battery.

yep, that is usually what the clicking means -- battery has enough power to light the lights, run the radio, but not enough to turn over the engine

I am not sure why the OP (Pattylax) mentioned the alarm; you can't get in the car with the alarm on, right? does it start with the alarm on?
