Can you help me decipher these 2 noises my Accord is making? (audio within) Sign In

I would really appreciate some insight. My 2009 Honda Accord (112k miles) started making two puzzling noises today and I'm at a loss:

The first is a low buzz/hum whenever I turn on the headlights or low beam lights. It never goes away until I turn off the headlights or the car. It seems to be coming from the passenger side of the car. The headlights still turn on fine.

A few minutes after the headlight-related buzz started, I started hearing a soft ticking coming from my dashboard. It's vaguely similar to the sound of the turn indicator, but much more muted. It also isn't going away.

I uploaded both noises in the clip linked below. You'll first hear the soft tick behind the dashboard, then I turn on the lights and you'll hear the buzz join in:

Of course, I want to take it to the mechanic, but I'm a little short on funds until next week, so I was hoping someone could shed light into what this might be, especially if it's something I may be able to troubleshoot myself. How worried should I be? Thanks so much!

The car has 2 headlight control modules, one on the right and one on the left. It sounds like the noise is coming from the one on the right which is behind the kick panel.

It has 2 fuses in it that you can check but beyond that it's a job for a professional.
