Icon4 guys, need help ASAP

this morning i went out to go start my ranger, and nothing....

no clicking from the starter motor or anything

the battery seems to be fine, as the radio, lights, etc all work....

the weird thing is, when i open the door, there is a clicking that sounds like the turn signal, but isnt, coming from the relay panel in the engine compartment....and the clock dims and brightens to the same kind of beat

im lost here guys, and im at a hotel on a client visit, so any help would be appreciated!!!!

Try the emergency fuel cutoff switch, its on the passenger side floorboard near the fire wall. This has happened to me a couple times.

so get a load of this......apparently there was an aftermarket security system installed on my truck (unbeknownst to me).....and it somehow shorted out, frying the ignition conrol

the guys at the dealer had to go through a bunch of wires in the steering column to take out all the splices, and remove the whole system.....$250 later, im all good

freakin a....
