Sounds like a dirty connection at battery or starter. Or a bad battery. Jump the truck and take it to an auto parts store to have battery tested (free in most cases) The rapid clicking you hear is the starter solinoid. It is normal in your case. Please advise if I can help further. Justin

On my 1997 Ranger there is also a spade connection on the starter that will periodically come loose just needs to be slide back snug or replaced.
