Passenger side clicking...

Last night I heard an on/off clicking noise from what seemed like underneath the passenger side dash. I assumed a fuse of some sort, did a quick search and found a couple of threads that stated it may be a relay issue attached to a few different options. Made it home last night and didn't drive again or research further.

This morning, I ran a couple of errands, got gas, turned my Jeep on and off a couple of times without issue. Stopped at the grocery store, came back out and turned it on normal. I went to back out of my spot, reversed and then as I put it in first, I thought I had stalled which was odd, had given it plenty of gas, it died. Everything, blank, no dash, no stereo, no alternator clicks no nothing. I do have a kill switch which was installed by the previous owner, but it still allows for electrical when engaged (can start without the clutch pedal being depressed if that comes into play?). I flipped that switch a couple of times and still nothing.

I get a push out of the way, forward some back some and then forward again trying to get into a parking spot to leave it for a moment and diagnose. Just as I'm almost in, I go to try it and turn the key forward, boom, music, lights, engine, action. Everything seems to be operating normally.

Any ideas where to start or what I can look at to try and avoid this happening again the future?

Let me know if I can provide any more pertinent information. 2002, battery terminals secure, maybe a little dirty but not corroded. Battery reads well, only about a year old.

Thanks for reading.
