Default L-200 Light Switch Issue

My daughter's '03 L200 had a problem with the turn signal/brights switch. It had a shorted contact that left the brights on all the time and ran the battery down. I bought a replacement from Autozone and put it in. Now the light functions are all correct, everything's doing what it's supposed to, BUT, in the two positions other than AUTO there's a rapid clicking sound like a relay pulling in and dropping out coming from behind the instrument panel (at least that's where it sounds like it's coming from). THe key has to be on to get the clicking but the engine doesn't have to be running. I'd guess that it clicks at a rate of 6 per second. Any ideas what this might be?

It sounds like the replacement switch may not be a correct fit. You have the electrical equivalent of a "do loop".
