2006 TJ 2.4l won't start

I started my TJ and backed out if the garage this morning, turned it off to lock the garage door, went to start it again and it just went 'click click click click' really fast... Like when the battery is dead but much faster. The gauge needles also bounced around a bit.

Any thoughts?

You've checked the battery, terminals and connections?

I'd remove the battery cables, clean them both up really well along with the posts on the battery and reinstall. Be sure they are on there good and tight. Lets see if that helps first.

Great thanks! I didn't have chance to even look at it, it was raining and I was late for work, had to grab my wife's jeep and take off.

Thanks again, I'll post update tonight
