  1. Have you had an assistant listen to see if the click is coming from the starter or starter relay?
  2. Do you own a tool for testing 12 volts?

Where is the starter relay
Expert:  Chris (aka- Moose) replied 7 months ago.

Thanks, ***** ***** cut relay is to the right of the steering column. Without a test light or volt meter to do testing your going to keep parts replacing guessing and you may never fix it this way. We need to be able to test this circuit to diagnose it correctly.
