It is the Auto Shutdown Relay located in the power distribution center under the hood, the black box with all the fuses and relays. Replace the relay, and check all the 30amp and 50 amp fuses. You might try removing the relay and reinstalling it first, to see if it will reset.

What would cause the auto shutdown relay to click after i try starting it and will start.

Mostly likely it is the Relay that is beginning to go bad. One way to test this is to use the Spare Relay of the same Type (size and shape). OR switch out a similiar Relay of the same type (size and shape) THAT IS A NON-ENGINE OPERATION RELAY. Check again the operations. If the "new" Relay in the Auto Shutdown Relay no longer clicks, then it most likely was the Relay that should be replaced. However, IF you used the "old" Relay in another function, put your finger on this Relay while the function is "On" and determine if it is now clicking. If it is clicking, then it is definitely the Relay and needs to be replaced.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have addtional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at!

inside the front bumper between the front grill and the a/c condenser
The relay mounting location is designed to dissipate heat. Ensure the relay is securely attached to prevent relay "thermal" shutdown and relay damage, resulting in possible engine overheating.
