Relay seems to be getting power ( it's clicking) there is NO FUSE OR FUSABLE LINK. Wire straight from relay has no power. Add power to it and still get none from the other end.
A couple of things: Relays have a power side, and a coil side which signals the relay on. Your coil side is working, hence the click, which should close contacts on the power side, and send power out from the relay.
Just possible your relay is bad on the power side. Swap it with another relay to check. The exact same relay may have other applications on your car. If the relay's part numbers match, it is the same relay.
The other possibility is the power feed for the relay may have been lost. Usually the power side, the power feed terminal, is hot at all times- battery voltage available at the relay-just waiting to be sent to do work. And if it is "hot at all times", that means the power feed is fed from a maxifuse or a fusible link. Power from the battery would not be sent there without a fuse or fuse link for protection.
If you have a test light or voltmeter, try this: pull the relay out, key off, and probe all 4 or 5 terminals of the relay plug terminals. If "hot at all times", one terminal should show power on it. If it is a hot at all times terminal, your relay is definitely bad if you find power there. Now some circuits with a relay, like some starter relays, do not have a hot at all times power feed- only when key is on, or when relay is signaled, does the power feed show up. To check this, turn the key to on, or to start if a starter relay, and now check all relay terminals with the test light. This time you should show two hot terminals- the power side feed and the coil side (the relay signal side) should both have power on them. If you only see the coil side power that made the click, then you have to check the wiring to that relay. Good luck.
