Posting here because I dont trust random car forums(never get any answers and I like you guys). I did as much research into this as I could without getting too confused, I enjoy troubleshooting and fixing what I can on my own, but I am not too proud to just take the thing somewhere to get it fixed if I have to.
So I start my car yesterday, and I couldnt put my finger on it, but something strange happened during startup. Car ended up starting fine but there was something different about the timing/sounds when it did start up. I went and got gas 5 minutes away(Car started fine I paid more attention that time starting it up at the gas station). Then drove all the way back to my appartment which is about 20 minutes. Go out this morning, and power doors/remote doors dome light come on like normal, but the car doesnt start. I hear a humming which I assume is the fuel pump from descriptions. The clock and radio don't come on at all, and when in accessory they dont come on. I call my boss and say I can't make it in, but I am not done troubleshooting. I go out 4 hours later at lunch, and nothing is powered, and no noise when starting. Now theres an audible clicking under the steering wheel, which I figure out is the fuse box. The battery saver relay is clicking rapidly.
I dont have anyone to help jump until tonight, and I hope I can get this resolved quickly. Could the relay/fuse(I assume that box is the fuse for the relay, not the relay?) just need replacement? Or is the fuse breaking the symptom of another problem?
N.B.: I ask if its a symptom, as I read in a forum that problems with electricals in cars can cause this, and I had a car window replaced 2 weeks ago, where they had to take the door apart. I am curious if taking the door apart they fucked something up, which causes a constant drain on the battery. I am comfortable pulling fuses, but this relay spot is a black box above them and I am not sure I can just yank it out if I need to?
Any advice would be a help, or knowledge about the relay box and how to remove, or if I need to...
