1999 dodge intrepid will not start or crank just asd relay clicking even when the key is out of the ignition and a smell of gas until you pull the ground cables off

My car has 155500 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there - you have pretty-well identified this problem yourself - well done! Yes, the Automatic Shutdown Relay appears to be sticking in the "power on" position, which is providing a power path to the fuel pump as well as other components. I would recommend an electrical inspection by a mobile, professional mechanic, such as one from YourMechanic, who will come to your location, confirm this diagnose, give you an accurate assessment of damage and cost estimate for repairs.
