Sounds like the relay board wasn't the problem anyway. The clicking was probably the fan relay starting and stopping the fan. The new board may have a qiueter relay but you still have the original problem. Did you change the thermostat recently? It might help to remove the wire from the R terminal of the furnace control circuit and that will isolate the thermostat from the circuit. If it still cycles, it is a furnace problem, if it does not, it is a thermostat or wiring problem. In heating mode, the thermostat does not control the fan. It is controlled by a thermostatic switch in the furnace or a time delay switch. In cooling mode, the thermostat controls the fan.

Next we should know what triggers the fan in heat mode. Is it a time delay or is it a temperature control. If you could give us the model number maybe I could find a parts breakdown online. You could follow the blower leads and see exactly where they go. It may help to find the source of the power. It sounds like a time delay that is acting up or a shorted low voltage wire.
