When the fuse blows figure out what you are doing, what switch is being pressed, then remove the needed panels to access the wiring to the switch and motor it operates, then you will find the damaged wiring and repair the short, no quick fix, just hard grunt work.
Check the electrical connections for you control switches...there should be at least two of them. Disconnect them and see if there are any recessed pins or dirt. Do this several times as there may be some oxidation on the connectors and doing this will help clean them off. The radio and door light works of the small limit switch on your door frame. Everything else works through the operators window/door lock control panel.
The clicking you are hearing is the starter solenoid attempting to engage your flywheel of the engine. So you do have some battery life and your battery cables aren't totally bad. So now we need to try to determine what the problem is.
First, try to jump start the car. If that works and the car starts. IMMEDIATELY, take it to an auto parts store and ask them to test your battery and alternator. Replace whichever one is bad.
If it doesn't start, then it is either your starting circuit or the engine. So you need to take off your serpentine belt and try to turn the engine (in neutral or out of gear) by hand (actually with a large socket wrench). If it turns, then you have either a bad starter solenoid or a bad starter - replace them! If you can't turn the engine by hand then the problem is internal to the engine and something is locking your flywheel.
The other warning messages are not uncommon if you attempt to start your vehicle and it doesn't start.
I had same problem when I had a plain copy of the key made.
There's a proximity chip in the factory key or something, but the plain copy would not work. Engine would crank, then immediately stop. I didn't need the extra key bad enough to spend $80+ at the dealership.
I have the same truck. The thing is designed so that the radio and dome light and even the windows will operate for a time which should expire immediately when you open the door. Try turning on the radio with engine running and then turn off the engine and just sit there and the radio should still play. Try the power windows - they too should go up and down. Finally open the drivers door and that should immediately kill the radio, windows and dome light. If it does not - you will need to report that problem to your dealer since the problem is in that timer feature which is part of the vehicles "brain". Sorry I can't be more helpful.
