Not cranking or starting - melted bsti fuse

I have a 2002 Fleetwood Terra. Its a workhorse p32 chassis. Recently started having starting issues after stopping for about 10 minutes and trying to start it again. My engine doesn't crank at all. The dash fully lights up. There's just one loud click from behind the instrument panel upon turning the ignition back to off position.

I noticed that the bsti relay had completely melted and damaged the fuse box a bit (picture attached). I'm wondering if that is my starting issue maybe? I'm not sure what to test.

Bummer. I think you're gonna want to see behind there to see if any of the wires melted. I guess if you can't find any shorts you could solder in the fuse/relay but you may need a new fuse block. Hopefully it's just want you can see that is melted.

Good luck.

Is there a sticker in the lid to that box that tells you what goes in those slots?

Yes. That melted one is the brake to shift relay. The one above it is just supposed to be empty.
