Probably your starter solonoid.some starters have them built in on them and some are mounted on the fender wall ,witch would have apower cable running from pos.+ batt. terminal to it then to starter if pos+ batt. cable goes directly to starter it's built in. Or it could be your ignition switch that the key goes into.

Where is the alternator relay on 2004 Kia Spectra


According to my database, no generator relay, there are a couple of fuses for gen and fusible link for generator bat terminal. You could check battery amp draw with everything off. You may have to wait several minutes before testing.
