I drove to my car, and here are some symptoms.

1. No power to windows, seats, power door locks.

2. Car will not start. Ignition comes on, car tunrs over, but will not start.

3. Interior lights work. While on, if I try to use windows, seat, or door locks, the interior lights cut out, then back on.

I can hear a clicking under the dash on teh passenger side when this happens.

My question is, is it a bad relay, or something causing the relay to trip. Or is this the problem at all?

The shorted wire makes a good story because it would explain why the windows aren't working and why it could make the lights dim/go out when used. hrm...what do you think of that jwik?
Try not to double post. It gets confusing.
