Buzzing sound is coming from unit next to solenoid. It is still making a buzzing sound and vibrating. Should I disconnect the battery?

Buzzing with key off? Undo do the battery!

Or it it a rapid clicking at solenoid when key is turned to start? If that is it, then battery is dead or cables are dirty, not enough voltage to the solenoid.

There is a unit covered with a black cover right next to solenoid that is vibrating and making a buzzing sound.

I see nothing there on the model I picked. See link below. Is it a plug in relay, and it is with key OFF>
