Did you buy the battery from new or was it a spare? Clicking sound when trying to turn key in ignition is usually low battery. The radio and lights may still work for a few minutes if there is enough charge left but the engine wont turn over. Turn off all lights, alarm and radio - wait 20minutes and try to turn engine over. Or failing that do what I've said below: Get someone to jump start your car with jumper leads. Once its running, drive your car around for half hour to one hour to re-charge battery. If fault isn't with battery then it could be alternator or spark plugs. Dodgy spark plugs can cause the car not to start. You probably have a loose connection or corrosion. Clean battery terminals and ends of wires. try the starter solenoid Make sure your battery posts are clean and the cable connectors are clean & tight. If this is not problem don't have another answer.

You might have to replace the ignition swith.

After replacing the battery after a week my car doesn't start anymore when i put the key in the ignition and go to start the car all the lights turn off in the car and all i hear is a click?

New Battery Doesn't Help It probably is a defective alternator or generator which is not charging the new battery, and thus the new battery is now almost fully discharged.
