My Ford Focus lights flicker on when I start my car even though the light selector is set to off. What is the likely cause?

Thanks for the response. If it is an earth problem is there an area I should look at? I have recently had a new windscreen with integral electrical heater fitted but I am not sure if the headlight issue started before this or not.

i may have a possible answer for you but it depends on what focus you have i am hoping it is tdci if so remove the glowplug relay and try to start the car an see if the headlights stop flickering if they do try a new relay they are around £4 -£5. the relay is K70 on the below
