You may be. Under the hood is a power distribution center. You may find a problem there. The ground for both the radio and instrument panel are in the center of the dash, back behind the radio, and next to your left foot is a trim panel, there is a ground there and in the same place on the other side. If you can find out which relay or module is clicking, it may be that also. So there are 5 spots to look. And if you use a 12 volt test light and ground its clip on any good piece of steel or frame, it will light. This is a power test. If you put your test light to 12 volts, it becomes a ground check. If you find the clicking relay or module, write down the color of the wires, and let me know. Remember, when checking for grounds with a test light, the key should be off, so be careful as you may blow a fuse in one of the two fuse locations. 1. Where you already looked and 2. In the power distribution center, a black covered box, under the hood. Is this a Dodge radio?
In the power center number 2, I spoke of, there should be a couple of spare fuses and relays, so you have them. Need a 12volt test light to test for power or ground. This is the least expensive way to test an automotive circuit. And the only way, to make sure a fuse is good, and has power.
