Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

There are several things that could be going on and it will require some testing to determine what is going on. If the correctly relay and the switch have both been replaced then odds are you have a wiring issue.

If you use the dimmer do the high beams stay on with the headlamp switch off?

What relay was replaced?
