I have had headlight relays replaced every couple of years. Today, after my 95 sat fro a month, I turned it on and everything seemed ok. Then the battery cut out. Got a jump from a motorist but the car still wouldn't start. Had AAA out, the car turned over and then stopped dead while idleing.

AAA suggested it was an alternator problem, but I also noticed that there was a ticking sound from one of the fuse/relay's in the little box next to the battery.

ANy suggestions?
