Question about 1988 Mercury Grand Marquis

1 Answer

Head lights turn off and come back on on their own!!!!!

I have a 1997 dodge dakota and recently i've noticed that after driving for about 15 minutes the head lights and only the head lights go off for a few seconds and then come back on for a few seconds and then back off. This is a very dangerouse problem when you do a lot of early morning driving. Only both head lights go off and at the same time.

There is a short in the power wire to the headlights from the headlight switch. The internal circuit breaker in the headlight switch is overheating and shutting them down, until it cools off.
