I would have to hear the noise to be sure but it sounds like the attery could be weak. The clicking you here may be the starter solenoid trying to engage, but it cant, because of a lack of electrical power. If that is the case, the clicking will probably be a rapid clicking noise, that might sound like a woodpecker. The salanoid switch or the battery could be bad. Also make sure you have good clean tight connections. Sometime you have to disconnect the electric cables and clean them with sand paper. Then reconect them.

What is PAR in red remover?

its how many clicks you have to do it in. so if it says par=2, it means you have to do it in 2 clicks or less. but don't let the clicks get you confused with the par. clicks is how many clicks you did it in last time and par is how many you actually have to do it in. you only pass when the clicks is equal to the par.
