Default Car won't start, but won't turn off

I'm posting this for a friend who doesn't have internet, so I will keep it short and explain as much as I know.

The car is a 1991 Legacy wagon 5mt awd. My friend was driving it tonight when the car died. When he pulled over, the car wouldn't start (it "clicks" he said, over and over again). He can take the key out, but the lights stay on like the key is still in the ignition. And the temp gauge is pegged to full hot, but the coolant isn't hot enough to burn you. Does anyone have any ideas?

Sounds like you have some kind of electrical ground out?
