clicking sounds does make it sound like a relay..... but still if it is there has to be a root cause to that...

try a wiggle test..... sounds like something is trying to short out....

Probably a bad ground somewhere. Do like fbodygrad said and start shaking wires under the dash and behind radio till it cuts off again. Sounds like a relay but thatwould be odd as most relays operate motors and stuff like that not radios.
