Default Starter not working right

So two day's ago I was working on my truck a little becuse the door ajar light stay's on. I read up somewhere to spray WD40 in the latchs and slam the door a couple times. So I did that and slammed each door 5 times. After I did that the truck would not turn over. Each time I tried to turn it over, i would hear clickclickclickclick from the starter. It is not the battery, the battery is good. Any help?

A clicking starter solenoid is low voltage. Your battery is dead or you have a bad clamp or connection. Saying "the battery is fine" without actually testing it or jumping it means nothing. Concidering you were working on the truck and having nothing to do with the cables. I'd say jump it. I bet it starts.
