Default Having some electrical issues on my 01 LX

First, I am pretty sure that I have a ground issue somewhere. FIiguring out where to check is where I need some help. Here are the symptoms right now:

1. Sometimes I get a series of clicks and corresponding with the clicks thelights on the dash come on and off. The clicks and lights flashing come and go at random. Clicks are coming from under the dash and likely in the center but I haven't been able to isolate it further.

2. The turn signals and running lights are on full time. When the clicks happen, they flicker at the same time as the clicks.

3. The front step has stopped working.

4. The leveling system thinks it is working but its like it doesnt have enough power to do the job.

There are probably other symptoms I haven't found yet. I am in Pensacola right now if anyone knows someone that can take a look or I will take it as far as I can on my own

Any suggestions on where to start?

So I finally figured out that the clicking can be started when I open and close the front door. And I have figured out that the item clicking is in the CB cubbyhole. Its labelled Fleet and mount to a board inside the door. I think it may be associated with the anti theft device.

Ironically as I went to sleep last night it occurred to me that my cleaning crew may have accidentally flipped the panic button. Sure enough, I flipped it back this morning and the clicking and flickering of the turn signals and lights on the dashboard ceased. It was that panic button. I will say that the thing is fairly useless as a panic button.

I still have the issue with the leveling Jack's and the step. They are likely unrelated.

Just a thought, could it be batteries run down from the lights etc continually flickering? What is the condition of your batteries? voltage?

They are in great shape and well-charged. Thanks for the suggestion, though.
