Every since I replaced the main relay it has caused my car to cut out, lose power, the heater does not blow and the windows will not open. I still have the problem of it clicking. If I keep trying it will finally turnover and starts. What could be the cause of this?

Do not think so. The main relay usually has a bunch of extra parts in it to control multiple items while the inhibit relay is nothing but a simple relay.

Hey,

It sounds like you should do a load test on the battery to start. Then follow this wiring diagram and run some tests to see were you are losing the power at.
