SOURCE: The headlights on my 1987
The head light switch.If this switch is got weak the internal switch wirings get overheated and this malfunctions the headlight.In this case the head light switch switch needs to be replaced.
The car's headlights comes from the car's electrical system, which includes the car battery and car alternator. When the headlight switch is activated inside the car, an electrical circuit is opened, which means that electricity begins to flow between the headlight switch and the car's electrical system.And this turns on the headlight.When you turn of the head light by deactivating the switch.The electric gets close and headlight turns off.This is the function.In most of the cases the headlight switch gets short and this creates this types of problem which you mentioned.But in some cases the head light switch is checked ok,but the real problem is to the part where head light bulb is connected.Inside the bulb connector there is metal earthing,to which the bulb end connects and it receives power.But if the earthing gets loose or the bulb gets loose or some dust gets between the bulb and the bulb holding connector then this causes the problem.Turn off the car,disconnect the negative battery wire for safety reasons,then remove the headlight bulbs and clean the internal socket of the head light when the bulb connects.Then reinsert the bulb and see if that is making any difference.But if same problem is noticed then its faulty headlight switch.Which is causing the problem.
This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.
