Urgent: Please help!

Hi,

This morning is drive to the petrol station, all was fine, then after I got back home I reseted my engine light, then I went to start up the car and it would start, its sounds like a clicking sound from the engine...

Does anyone have an idea what this problem could be?

I would appreciate your responses.
