morette headlights buzzing

my morette headlights have started buzzing when my engine is off and the full beam light on the dash board starts to flicker. If I pull the relay out it stops so would that mean I just need to replace the relay?
it also stops if I leave the relay in and turn the full beam on.

Are all the wires and connectors in good condition ?
Mine were corroded when I took them out. I found a chap on Ebay selling the circular lamp in crystal for 25. I took the old chrome ones out and replaced.
Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit.

Sounds like a poor earth, the buzzing is the relay and the dash lights dim as its trying to use them as a path to earth, check all earths around the front end, if nothing check all earths in the engine bay, I know the dash lights are flashing but I dont think you will find the problem is them.
