Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

The ASD relay is controlled by the ECM. If the relay is buzzing it's either because of a poor power feed, an issue on the driver circuit or the ECM itself is controlling the relay in a way that's causing the buzzing. This could be due to an internal ECM issue or a poor power or ground to it.

What is the actual problem you were trying to diagnose?
