I hear a buzzing sound from a relay ...what does that mean

Most commonly, you have an actual "buzzer".
That means this part is doing what is was made for.
It migh be telling you your key is still in the ignition, your door is open, your lights are on, you need to fasten your seat belt, or any of several other things.
I don't know what year, make, and model your pick-up is, but different trucks and models have different "buzzers".
If the sound irritates you, you might be able to "unplug" it.
Be sure not the throw it away, in case someting on your truck requires that buzzer to be in place to work.
Be blessed.

Hi there i have 1997 Avalon V6 . the check engine light up # 138 and 401 so can you tell me the name of that two please thnks

Trouble codes are normaly 4 digits with a "P" or "B" before it. I am gonna assume that you meant P0138 and P0401:
P0138 is Oxygen Sensor Circuit High Voltage (Bank 1, Sensor 2)
P0401 is Exhaust Gas Recirculation Flow Insufficient Detected

A code P0138 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
  • Faulty O2 sensor
  • Short to battery voltage in O2 sensor signal circuit
  • High fuel pressure (not as likely)
Possible Solutions Here are some potential solutions:
  • Replace O2 sensor
  • Repair short to battery voltage in o2 sensor signal circuit
for info on the P0401:

2001 Saturn L200 Sedan, 186,000+ miles. When first try to start it cold, engine stumbles and sometimes won't run--like its short of fuel or lacking spark. Try again and she starts fine and runs great...

You can read what the ECTS is telling your computer with a scanner. (It will read in degrees) If this is bad, sometimes it will read -40 degrees and cause the system to add more fuel, which may be you issue. Also, you can ohm out your spark plug wires to verify if they are all equal.
