Default starting issue

need to find/replace the starter relay - located (somewhere) within the distribution box. I replaced the starter, tried to jump start, but just get loud clacking. Probably an open circuit as it initially drained my battery (without warning).
is it possible to replace the relay without replacing the entire distribution box?

Thats what I am trying to do...replace the relay, but I still dont know what (exactly) to replace, or what the relay looks like or how much of the distribution box I have to take apart to get to it.

I have the same issue going on right now as well! Zero clicking noises or fuel pump engaging or anything! What is up with this! I just called the ford dealership and they have "no idea". I told them that the only fuses that are out currently are the three fuese for the trailer system. All they can say is maybe since that is out that the truck wont start....i don't believe them, but am gonna replace them anyway (gotta get my trailer home, legally).....
