need more details ... where exactly did the smoke come from? a terminal? or the whole battery vented smoke?

it sounds as tho it was a terminal ,,,, bad connection = intermittent power = equals things turning on and off = clicking

if smoke came out of the vents or the terminal is no longer usable you need a new battery

mean while one cable end at a time
remove and clean the end and the terminal on each battery, then tighten securely
battery mfg's website can give you a torque value
in general as tight as you dare with out twisting the terminal out of the battery

once you have all battery cables cleaned, and tight use a terminal sealant or heavy grease to seal acid and air out of the terminal connection
you want to do this, unless you like buying batteries before they are used up
