Default My headlights are possessed

I need some electrical guru help. I'm fairly certain that I have a relay that is dying, but for the life of me, I can't figure out what exactly the problem is. It began that my dash lights wouldn't turn on when I clicked my headlights on. If I clicked them on and off a few times, eventually they would turn on though. Now, I turn the headlights off, and the headlights will randomly turn themselves back on. The switch is off, but the lights aren't, and clicking the switch on and back off turns them off with some cycling, but not right away, just like the dash lights. Obviously, headlights that turn themselves on poses a problem with the life of my battery.

Traced it back to the headlight relay full of water. No idea how exactly that happened, but its fixed now. Just in case someone ever runs into this problem again.
