Help Electrical!!!!

2002 F350 4x4 Help Electrical!!!!

Prior to the following the truck was running and starting fine and was listening to the radio all day while doing the mirror install.
So I was finishing up my 08 mirror install and decided to pull the stock radio to clean up some wires hanging under the dash for my Sirius sat radio, well when I was pulling the radio, realized I needed to pull the dash bezel, which i did and unhooked the headlight switch, 4x4 switch, and aux power. I did all of this with the ignition turned to the on position so I could lower the gear shiftier on the column. Well in the middle of this I lost power and could hear a fast clicking coming from the fuse box so I opened the fuse box and this relay (see pic) was the one clicking. When I pulled it the clicking stopped but still no power. What do you think I did? Should I replace the relay or check other things. I don't want to screw any thing else up.

I believe that's the IDM Realy (303 - right?), have a look at this -> POTENTIAL ELECTRICAL CORROSION if your truck is like mine......

Thanks!! I will look at that. I went ahead and bought a new relay and poof it was fixed. I am a little worried though, I cant see how that relay would just die while I was working on mirrors and radio....so I will look further and see if I have that corrosion problem from the above thread.
