Whining noise when I put lights on

Hi there,
1997 Rover 216 Cabriolet

Sorry if this has been asked before but I have tried searching and surfing and can't find anything similar. I have a whining noise coming from what seems like the ECU which is only there when I put the lights on. Further more my rear and front side light has blown after being replaced so not sure if the two things are related. Any help or advice would be much appreciated.

Thanks

Edward

Sounds like it could be a poor earthing problem

Turned out it was the nearside headlight adjuster motor just continually whirring round. Considerably cheaper fix. The light problem was a fuse and with the fuse out the motor kept whirring bizarrely. Anyway, thank for your suggestions.

Glad you sorted it and thanks for letting us all know what the fault was
