Sounds like ignition relay.

    It should be as simple as a direct replacment. If you remove the panel from the front of the fuse cover you should see some large cube shaped blocks. If I'm right then the clicking sound will be coming from one of these (they are the relays) that should be the one needing replacement.
    Sorry to ask the obvious but you have checked the battery is fully charged, as if the battery is low or breaking down under load then this could also caise these symptons.

2005 FORD FREESTYLE THAT HAS NEW BATTERY, CABLES STARTER AND ALTERNATOR. BUT DOES NOT STAY CHARGED


What do you mean won't stay charged ? Battery dies while driving , dies over night ? Is the battery symbol lit on the dash , check charging system message on driver info center ? If it drains over night there is a parasitic draw on the electrical system ! If while driving the battery goes dead it's not charging , with a new alternator the problem is in the electrical circuitry . Blown fusible link or fuse . This charging system is controlled by the PCM - engine computer , the heavier gage wire on the back of the alternator should have battery voltage , if not blown fusible link near the battery . The connector with three wires ,one should have B+ voltage , the other two come from the PCM .

No power in ignition...


If you have another set of keys with a FOB, try it. The anti-theft will reduce voltage to the starter to prevent thefts. If the anti-theft is not reading the key that is inserted, you will not get battery voltage to the starter.

there is a door that directs cold or hot air behind the dashboard in order to make the passenger's side colder or hotter relative to the driver's side.
The a/c door servo may be bad, or the temperature settings for each zone are not balanced.

Car won't start


You might have a security problem. Cant see it bein the fuel pump with how new the vehicle is. Not a spark plug problem. Need to check if your getting spark from the ignition coil. If you are then you need to make sure your gettin fuel to the engine.

Fuel problem


The problems you're  having with your freestyle are very common, whats happening is that your fuel tank is designed like a saddle.  
There is a fuel pump on the passenger side of the tank and a remote pick-up on the drivers side. What happens is that the jet pump, which is responsible for pumping the fuel from the drivers side of the tank to the passenger side is not working and so when the pass side fuel level is low. The drivers side still has fuel but it is unable to get it to the drivers side. So it wont start, but it still reads 1/4 tank because that is how much fuel is in the drivers side. 
From driving around, some fuel does spill over the hump. But without the jet pump working, it will never empty the drivers side of the tank. You are correct in saying you need a new fuel pump, it is one big assembly, and unfortunately, expensive as well.

Good luck and hope this helps, the only other thing is to have the van Scanned for any DCT codes.
