When you replace the switch and the relay did you notice and signs of melting of the connector on either one?
Are you able to isolate the sound of the crackling, that type of noise in most cases indicates a connection concern.
If its sound like the relay then go back and make sure the relay has the proper ground.
Which relay is chattering?
Give me a moment to review the wiring diagram and Ill post back .
Looks like the relay gets it ground from the combination switch on the black wire (pin #8) at the switch. See the wiring diagram in the link below for reference.

If you can find the source of the crackling I think you will find your problem.
If you have proper voltage to it and a good ground it should work. Something sure dose not make any sense for sure. This may require some hands on professional help.
Okay , lets hope that solves the problem. Let me know.
