If the car is original, that won't be a relay you are hearing, just the click of the switch mechanism.

What year/model is your car?

I had a problem like this, It was a loose connection under the fuse box. Cleaned the connections and they worked, 75 2002.

I found that since I seldom even use my lights my stalk switch contacts would crud up and not make good contact. I spray WD40 liberally into the stalk switch catching the overflow on a rag and activate the switch over and over to clean the contacts. Dumb stupid but it worked for me.

Have fun

If dirty switch or relay contacts are suspected, DeoxIT is a far superior contact cleaner/deoxidizer than WD-40.

Check out www.caig.com for technical product info....

I had the same problem. The light stalk was the culprit. Remove, clean and make sure it's not loose. Good luck.

Check the wire connectors coming into the relays. Sometimes when you install a relay, you push the female connectors down a little where they just barely touch, but not enough to kick the lights on. The relays will still click some as they try to fire up.

Loose fuse, as noted, is also common culprit.
