i had this same problem.put keys in ignition turned...and engine light flashing and clicking noise coming from under the bonnet...so my fix was...under the bonnet at the right side of the engine is your ecu..there`s a big bolt earthing it to the top of the gearbox.undo the big bolt.attach another wire to it.tighten it up and attach the new wire to the earth of the battery.this should solve your problem.it did mine.
