Is it possible that your leaving the dome light on in the vehicle? Any battery should last more than 2 years if driven regularly but the clicking sound is only from you not having enough power to start your car, maybe it's just a faulty battery or possibly some type of device that you might be leaving on that is draining the battery. Id look around just to make sure never know iv'e done it a few times on accident. Good luck
