that's odd.

usually after someone steals the batteries, the clicking noise stops.


stray wires into the battery box usually (but not always) go to hot, since you can ground anywhere. trace the wire back and see where it goes.

clicking but not turning over is usually just low voltage. big batteries need to charge for a long time.

You do not explain the problem well at all. Wires have 2 ends so find the other ends, we can't.


Then tell us what you find.

Great news! Are you happy with it now?
Now get a lock on your battery door before they go missing again.
