When the dash display read 'fuse' it indicates that the Ignitition Off Draw fuse is not installed or is blown. The fuse is used when the car is in storage (or sitting on the car lot) so that you can disconnect all loads that would cause the battery to go dead over time. The odomoter displays fuse to remind the dealer to install it before delivering the car to the customer.

It is located in the fuse panel under the hood. It's easy to miss because it's in a small black plastic clip that you can pull up to disconnect the fuse, without removing it completely.

It should be labeled on the lid of the fuse box as IOD. It powers up the interior lights, along with the radio and a few other things. It most commonly get's blown during installation of aftermarket radios, etc.

Clicking noise coming from the fuse box "under the dash" when I turn on the heat, now car won't start.

that item is called a relay switch. it toggles on and off depending on which electrical component it is connecting. if it's blown, they are cheap and easy to replace like a fuse, but you'll need to look at the fuse box chart (usually on the underside of the lid) to determine which one and where it's located. You can't look inside the relay to determine if blown, but you can replace them one at a time to test...
Also, if you're experienced in electrical, a paper clip can be used when the relay is out, to connect the circuit that you need. use tools and or gloves when attempting this method.

The car won't start; lights, ac, radio etc come on but car won't turn over or even click; checked battery cables; put different battery in; still won't start

Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle
