Headlight relay contacts are probably "welded" together from wear ... Pull the relay out and get a jump to start engine and recharge battery ... then plug relay back in to seee if the lights stay off/on Relay contacts on High current loads ,,arc and over a period of time develop resistance /// causing heat resulting in failure
