Jeep just died No Power

Help My jeep wont start It is a 93 5.2l I just stoped to go into a store and when I tried to start the jeep I got nothing. then something starting ticking under the dash on the pasanger side but would stop if you open the door or turn the key. There is no power to any thing except when you turn the key to the accesory position the radio will work. Can someone help me get my jeep home.
Thanks
Boing

Just In Case Any One Else Has A Similar Problem And Its Not A Loose Battery Cable. I Had A Problem Where My Lights Would Not Go Off I Couldnt Even Get Them To Go Off After Pulling Out Fuses And Even Worse It Would Some Times Just Go Dead When I Tried To Start It...nothing Would Happen, Than The Next Day Or An Hour Later It Would Start Right Up Like Nothing Was Ever Wrong. It Ended Up Being That I Had Some Caroded Wire In The Rear Trailer Harness Causing A Short.

Ahh, the notorious loose battery cable. It happens to all of us at least once. Usually the simplest solution is the correct one.

Boing, be sure to apply a light coat of vasoline to the battery terminals. Since they weren't seated very well for a while, you have likely oxidized the metal and will soon begin to see white scales form. You can prevent this by applying vasoline, white lithium grease, or dialectric grease to the terminals.
