Always check the wiring at the back of the unit and the earth connection as these do get rusty. Make sure the battery/cells are in good working order.
When starting your car you hear a clicking noise, your starter motor gear may be sticking. Put your car in to 5th gear and without turning the ignition, roll the car forwards and backwards. This sometimes releases the gear.
You can test if your alternator is charging correctly by using a multimeter. Set the meter to DC current and then connect it to the battery terminals. Turn off all lights and interior electrics and rev the car to 2500rpm. The multimeter should read between 13.5v and 14.4 volts.
A lot of the alternator problems and starter motor problems can be resolved by simply checking the wiring and the general condition of the battery.
