Ford Freestyle won't start

Pulled our 06 Freestyle into the garage and turned off the ignition. Dash lights began flashing and making a clicking sound, and car won't start or even turn over. When ignition is turned, there is a clicking sound near the engine. Read other posts about the throttle body, could that be it? Any info is appreciated!

    Sounds as though your battery had a heart attack. The same happened to our 2005 Freestyle.

    A few months ago I had this same problem. I changed the battery and got a new starter put in then the car started just fine. Now, about 3 months later I got a letter in the mail saying the throttle body had a recall on it and that deposits needed to be cleaned out. I took it in and had that done about a week ago. Several days later it will not start yet again! I have a brand new battery and starter and on top of that I had the throttle body issue addressed and repaired. I'm just wondering what on earth could it be? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
