Default HElp, my truck wouldn't start.... 2005 dodge ram 1500 4.7l

My truck is acting up. when I try to go start my truck up it would not start. All I hear is clickkng noise from the battery and then when I take out the key the truck red security light would flash, the overhead light ans everything else would pulsate and the alarm would go off. I read a few post online and it said that it could be the battery so I replaced the battery and the same thing happens. Im stumped as to why it doez this please help.

What happened when you put the brand new battery in and tried to start it? Same thing? was the battery you put in it fully charged?
