My car would only give a faint thud.

I removed a aftermarket alarm. The theft light was not on

The generic electrical module found behind the fuse box began clicking after I tried to as a last resort jump the neutral safety switch.

Still nothing and I checked the module for burn marks.

Is there anything I should check for before throwing parts at it?

Does it have a fully charged battery and good clean and tight connections? Light thud and clicking both sound like low voltage.

I have fully charged battery, the G.E.M stopped clicking with the full battery. I have also unhooked the under-part of the ignition to see if it was a faulty switch but to no avail.

The only clicking sound I am getting is from the yellow flasher relay driver side kick panel next to stereo.

You say you removed an aftermarket alarm? Those usually get connected in the system to prevent engine start as well as sound an alarm. I would see if you can find the installation instructions, it' is possible that a wire was cut or tapped into with a scotchlock style connector and is now broken.
