If the radio and clock are clearing it has to be a complete power disconnect. The clicking is probably a /or several relays going off / on when the power drops out and then back on.
Start at the battery connections, then where the cables are crimped / soldered to the cable connectors, and unfortunately the focus is notorious for its bad grounds. If none of these are bad check the loom in the tilt portion of the steering column for shorts / bare wires .
