Default Odyssey won't start - good battery

I thought it was the battery, but I had it checked, and it's good (285 CCAs). The van has plenty of power. But when I turn the key, there is a fairly loud, *very* fast clicking noise (as in, sub-machine gun fast) coming from somewhere down in the engine bay. I've replaced starters on old cars in the past, I recall it being a single, loud click. Is this a starter problem or something else? It seems too loud to be the clicking noise a short would make. When I turn the key, the dash lights flicker a lot also, almost going off (not out, like a low battery would indicate).

Any ideas?

Nevermind. Fixed it. The cables had corroded so badly at the + terminal of the battery, that the starter wasn't getting enough power. I just had to make clean connections for everything.
