SOURCE: 1998 dodge caravan eatx relay is clicking. Vehicle

It sounds like you are using an after market scanner. You will need to take it to a dealoror service garage that uses either a snap-on scanner or dealorship scanner, so the perimeters can be looked at to see what is on/off to determine what device is not getting a reference voltage. It sounds like a connector, but without a good scanner to look at the individual componets, you will only be guessing.

Might be the ignition switch in the steering column. When you use the remote you bypass that switch. My understanding of the eatx is the car won't start at all.
