The purpose of the resistance in the plug wires is there so that the (1) plug firing voltage is great enough to maintain a sufficent spark firing time and (2) the resistance suppresses interferance with electronic equipment and radios. Spark plug wires are easily broken internally when being removed from the plug, as they can become attached to the spark ...

I had a Chevy van do that same thing and after several pricey mechanics looked at it a "good ole local boy" mechanic found the issue. My main computer was mounted under my drivers seat and was loose. Going around corners, up hills, stopping ect.... Would break connection and cause surging that drove me crazy for months! He bolted it back down and fixed ...

The vehicle will have to be somewhere it can be reprogrammed with the new key(s).

Check to see where the issue lies by doing the following: Using a multimeter, check the voltage at the batter without the engine running. If the battery is in good shape, it should be around 12.9-13.1 volts DC (vdc). I would assume since you are getting a clicking noise, your voltage reading is going to be much lower. If you do get the correct voltage ...
