The fuel pump is turning on, not sure about the spark there is a clicking noise coming from the top of the engine when u turn the key to the on position but quits after a few sec

Clicking may be IAC self test. Have battery load tested. Starter could be drawing too much juice too(bad).

Ok I will try that, but would that also cause the power distribution box to try an melt another blower motor relay

Do you run blower on high a lot? Blower motor may be drawing too many amps and overheating relay/circuit.
