Default Electrical Issue PLZ HELP!!!!

I own a 2002 Ford F-150 XLT 5.4L today I was putting in the seats because he carpet got wet and had to be dried. I had my headphones in my ears but after screwing in the last bolt for the driver seat I heard a clicking noise took my headphones out and heard a clicking in the fuse box under the steering wheel along with the interior lights flickering on and off at a steady pace. I realized that one of the relays is making a clicking noise along with the lights going on and off when I put the key in the dash lights flicker and my radio doesn't seem to work this only started happening a few hours ago. If anyone has any ideas or have dealt with this before I could really use some help.

I had a similar clicking noise/interior lights flickering once when I was installing audio wires under the carpet. I undid a factory ground under the passenger kick panel and that's what did it. Look around for loose/frayed/shorted wires. Might have hit something while working with the carpet.

Yep. What he said. If your relays aren't blowing; then it's probably a minor short. Might be hard to track down; but make sure your connections are strong.
