Default Car will not start

Hi. I just bought my Audi a few months ago, and love it. However, I have one major problem right now.

The car will not start. I am a good mechanic, and know cars pretty well, but this one has me baffled.

Battery is good. It rained like hell for a couple of days, but has since been dry. The car has no ODBC codes showing in the computer. The car will not start at all, no movement, no initial try to move. So I know that there is no issue with the battery, and the starter is not jammed. Tried to start the car in Park and in Neutral, with no change.

I hear a whine in the center rear of the engine, and hear two clicks under the windshield washer fluid reservoir, to the driver side of the engine.

I am thinking relay? So where is the starter relay?

if not that, does anyone have an idea?

Totally at a loss and need help here. Can't afford dealer labor prices for what is probably a cheap and easy fix.
