ford tempo

I' m having trouble with my 93 tempo. it wont start, i thought it was
the starter so i replaced it, still wont start, i noticed that when i
turn the key forward it made and long cliking sound. and when the key
was in the backwards position the interrior light would work and the
radio would work but as soon as i put on the headklights on every
thing would shut off. the headlights wouldn't come on at all. then
when i tried to start the car the clicking noise was coming from the
starter relay, so i replaced it. Now
the head lights work radio works but still wont start.

this is becoming very frustrating....
PLEASE CAN SOMEONE HELP ME

fords have this problem of overcharging batteries .. then the battery
gets wet on top and corrosion starts.. my truck used to do this.. i foud
eventually the battery was leaking up by the post and i had to clean
terminals like every month.. they werent green or anything but the lead
kept turning black inside the cable end.
