Answers :

The clicking means there is not enough power in the jump to throw the selenoid either. It could be just an inadequate connection in the cable clamp.

\015\0122-Turn on the engine of the vehicle delivering the jump and run the revs up a bit to generate more power.

\015\012If all of these together do not work, you likely need a new starter. And a battery charge by now.
The rapid clicking sound is the starter solenoid. What it's telling you is, the battery voltage is still too low. Either you have a poor connection with the jumper cables or the cables are too light to carry enough current to start the car. Leave the jumpers hooked to the other car for about 10 minutes the try it again. Make sure you have good connections the other car should charge your battery enough to start it in 10 minutes or so. If that don't work your battery may be shot or you have a bad battery cable, loose or corroded connection on your car.
