Find the relay making the clicking noise by setting your finger on top lightly, then check map on under side of cover for identification.

The car off the headlight stay on r comes back on later i changed out the headl switch in side the car and still have the problem and it drains the battery.

I'd make sure the battery has a full charge? Don't let the alternator charge it, if down very much, use a battery charger. Also, check your charging system.

Is your headlamp system full auto, meaning you can't manually turn off your headlamps? If battery is down, I don't like that system at all. You don't want to run around town in broad daylight with the headlamps on and the battery down with the alternator trying to do everything.
If full charge on battery and charging system ok, check for applicable trouble codes for bcm and or headlamp codes. Some of the national brand auto stores will check codes for free. In the diagram, the left side of module and hi beam relay, is the control side, has to have voltage and ground. The bcm supplies ground for one and voltage for the other. The bcm knows what's going on because of headlamp switch. I know you said the switch was new, but, what about the switch wiring to or from the bcm.

How do I check for a short when battery cable is connected

The clicking noise from fuse box is probably a relay! Nothing happening could mean anything! Without turning the ignition can you turn on headlights, does the inside light come on when you open the door, horn work?

Battery may be too weak. The battery can power the headlights and interior lights, but if the voltage is too low, the starter will not engage at all. Charge the battery and try again. BMWs have battery drains that kill the battery in 3-4 weeks. If you store one that long, it is recommended to use a trickle charger to maintain the battery.

Headlights have gone on without prompting

Any thing is possible. But I would start with a defective switch. Relay does what switch tells it to do.
Regarding Engine Control Relay usually hot at all times looks like you did a reverse battery drain test.
So far either headlight switch or relay and ECU relay.
This takes most techn's one hour to do .
After you finish testing the light switch and relay do the following test to make sure nothing else is draining your battery.
Remove the negative battery cable from its post and connect an ammeter red probe
to the negative battery post and the black probe to the negative battery cable.
Now start pulling fuses until the voltage on the meter returns to normal.
(anything above a half of a volt is too high) The fuse you pulled to get this
result is the affected circuit. Now you have to probe it from its B+ source to
the load
to find the short. Check all connectors for rust and the line for opens or
shorting to ground. Repair accordingly.

You can try this==== take a screw driver and tap on the relay switch with the handle while somebody is turning the ignition. This is only a test, not a definate solution. If you haven't already, check the starter solonoid. My opinion, if the ignition was bad, it wouldn't even click at the relay, but without testing it's hard to say.
