It sounds like your alternator may have gone out. If your starter is clicking, that means you're lacking spark, which would also point to an alternator issue. I would get it checked out.

the batt. icon appears on the dash or meter drops to 12 V when the alternator fails , the clicking starter means low batt. loose terminals/ connections or bad starter , try a jump start or make sure batt. is charged

It doesn't repeatedly click when key is turned. It only makes one full click then nothing. Battery is fully charged.

then it sounds like the starter is bad if it's the starter that's clicks
