Hello there, this sounds like there may be a few different issues going on. The starter relay or fuse will only blow if the starter is drawing too much power, or if there is a short to power. Likely causes for a no start would be the battery, battery cables, fuel pump, fuel filter, starter, or ignition switch. A qualified technician, such as one from YourMechanic, will be able to diagnose the turn over issue and perform any repairs required.
