    its a '94 grand cherokee laredo.

    heres whats going on... as most of you know the dome lights above the back seats can get pushed up inside of the console pretty easily. a friend pushed one of them up there and it wouldnt come down, and it kept the light on.

    same time he did that, a rapid clicking noise started coming from around the interior fuse panel. it only does it when the interior lights are were on, like when the door was open or whatever.

    also, it wont let me lock the doors from inside or the remote, and the cd player and truck monitoring screen (that shows the time / miles until next service) arent on as well.

    i pulled the fuse just now, and the fuse was still good.

    any ideas??? im fresh out... i have no clue.

    That rapid clicking is the relay. I would check the relays

    might have caused a short when he mashed in the light causing the relay to go ape shit. Start from the source (the mashed in light)

    i've owned two jeeps - both had electrical problems. luckily, both pieces of shit were under warranty so the monkeys at the dealership fixed the problems.
