1993 Honda Prelude SR 5 spd won't start

Hi everyone , I recently washed my engine on my 93' honda prelude sr 5 spd, covered distributor and air intake with a plastic bag but forgot to cover the alternator. It was cranking, but wouldnt start, now it doesnt crank but makes "clicking" noise from the engine. Whats the problem and how much would it cost? Thanks in advance.

p.s. the car isnt insured and has been parked for about 2 years but i start it and let it run every week.

jump start and let it run for a good time and check battery voltage while running you should get around 14v if your alt. is good

It needs a new battery from my experience,

I recently cleaned the Battery Terminals. Plugs look good, and I already tried jump starting it countless times but it still wont start. I dont have the tools to test battery voltage, is there another way to test the alternator, or anything else that can fix this ? thanks in advance

take it off together with your battery... take them to autozone to get them checked its free i think
