1995 Other Jeep Models V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 175500 miles
I have a Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited 5.2L and I just took out the headliner and replaced it. When I was reinstalling the headliner, everything was fine until I was reconnecting the overhead console. I reconnected the first part closest to the rear-view mirror and then reconnected the rear section that sits directly above that little half dome thing. It was fine until I was sliding the console back on and then the lights started dimming and there is a rapid clicking from the fuse box area on the passenger side. I also noticed that I don't seem to have proper power to the entire section where the radio is as well. I disconnected the battery and left it for 30 minutes before reconnecting it but it still has the same problems. I did take the headliner back out to check for any shorts in the wire and don't find any problems or see any fuses blown. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I need to sell my car in time to pay my rent! Thanks!
** More Details **
When you open the door: It has the rapid clicking noise, the door lights are at the normal brightness, the overhead console lights do not work and the power does not visibly come on to the radio or anything in that section
With the key in the 'ON' position: the lights and bells in the dash sound but like the batteries are going low then go out, the door lights and the radio console area lights flash on and off and the compass and thermometer seem to be working fine
When it is started: the lights in the door and radio area flash but the fan will come on to make the a/c or heat work, all of the exterior lights work except the overhead console, the door lights stay bright when the door is open but stops when the door shuts, and the interior light switch makes the lights come on except in the overhead console but it causes the fan to slow down a bit until you turn it back off.
I opened the panel in the glove compartment and found that the relay on the row nearest the opening on the right is the cause of the clicking. I went to the Jeep dealership and got a new relay and it still does the same thing.
