Exclamation Help...car Wont Start

I am freaking out...my car was fine earlier today and tonight when I got back from school I tried to turn it on and all it does it "CLICK CLICK CLICK" with the radio and lights and remote working but it doesn not turn on. I pulled the battery and the indicator is black saying "not sufficiently charged". Please tell me its not the starter and just the battery...I really need help!!!

when it clicks its the battery when it turns over but if it doesnt start it could be the starter, alternator, or the sparks.

don't go to the dealer, just go to Pep Boys or something. They have the same battery the dealer does and for a tenth of the price.

It might be your car key? I know that if you should happen to turn the key and the lights come on, and nothing happens...... You could also have a "dead" key. Sometimes, the chip in the key goes bad as well.
