Exclamation 2002 Pt limited non turbo wont start

Turn the key and the injectors and the ASD relay and the injector relay click very fast and will not stop clicking even if I remove the key. The starter is good as I ran a remote start wire between the solenoid and battery and it turns over fine.
I have checked all of the fuses twice and they are all good.
I swapped relays for known good relays and it acts the same exact way.
There is a round red LED blinking at a slow on off tempo.
I need the get this running ASAP so I can work.
Now it has had this clicking problem for almost a week but usually a few times turning it on and off it would start.
But now nothing.
Any help is HUGELY appreciated.
So thank you in advance.

The round red LED blinking slowly is the security light and means the system is armed. Does it go off when you turn the key? Do you have another key to try?

No I do not have another key to try unfortunately.
Is there any way to disable skim?
And even the clicking from the relay does not stop after the key is removed.
Sorry about the late reply I had a rough day due to car and headache.

I have checked both the ASD and the fuel injector relay .
I swapped many of them with the other known working ones.
The odd thing is when I turn the key back and pull the key out it still keeps clicking.
Its not the solenoid it is the relays and fuel injectors.
Before when it started happening I could wiggle the power panel and sometimes remove and replace the relays and It would fire right back up. But now she is stubborn as a mule.

Your PCM might have a relay driver that is shorted out.

You will need to check the voltage from the PCM to the ASD relay and you might see a spike in the voltage from the PCM to the ASD relay when it is clicking. Another member has it jump about 1 volt when it happens.
