My old 1969 dodge d100 does the same thing. Replace the dimmer switch. It fixed mine. IT gets hot and then shuts down. Try that, Should be cheap.

I have had this problem with two different vehicles, typically pontiac grandam, but when you turn the key to start, sometimes it doesn't return to the "on" position completely.

2002 Jeep Liberty headlights blink

I have the same problem. I had it when I turned on my Blinker and turned. When the switch in the steering wheel turn the blinker off it made my head lights blink sometimes. It has to do with the switch that controls the blinker and the head lights. It does not happen all the time.
