Headlights do not work.

from the diagram I looked at, voltage to headlamp switch is hot all the time. The headlamp switch has an internal circuit breaker. When you turn on headlamps, the voltage goes from headlamp switch to dimmer switch then to the headlamps. You could have problem with dimmer switch?

Headlights go off for a few seconds then back on

Have you replaced the headlights? If so you may have installed lights that have too much of a amperage draw and the circuit breaker is switching off. Actually it is not a circuit breaker as you know it, but a heat-sensitive breaker that opens the circuit when current (amperage) is excessive. A short in the wiring or even a headlight may also cause the same problem.

My 1996 jeep cherokee headlamps turn off and on on 5 second intervals. what could be the solution

I'm going to post this in the clarification section. I don't have a wiring diagram for a 96 Grand Cherokee headlight circuit.
The 95 models used a circuit breaker built-into the headlight switch. The 97 models used a fuse in the fuse box. If your model uses the headlight circuit breaker, a short in one of the headlights or the wiring harness would trip the circuit breaker in the switch. You could unplug one headlight at a time to see if it continues to go on and off.

My head lights will turn off after a short time on. If I cycle the headlight switch it solves the problem for anywhere from a few seconds to 15 or 20 minutes. This only involves the headlights, not the...

Headlights are usually protected by self resetting circuit breaker instead of a throw away fuse. If you are certain of no dead short in the headlight circuit, the only other option is a new circuit breaker. Since you get various times of normal operation after the breaker resetts, I would suspect the breaker rather than a short.

2000 Mercury G/Marq - After approx 45 mins of the car running, the headlights will start to flash. We've replaced the hlight switch and still does it. Any Suggestions ??

Yes, I suggest looking for the Headlight Relay and a Circuit Breaker. You should find the Relay in the Powerbox under the hood and the circuit breaker should be in the fuse panel.

What is happening is the contacts are overheating. Instead of blowing a fuse some models use a Circuit breaker which recycles when it cools down. You can get the same action out of a Relay that is going bad.

If this continues after you replace the parts you should test the voltage going to the headlights and check the bulb sockets for corrosion. The headlights are made so that the low beam and high beam are separate and they are not on at the same time. If both filaments were on at the same time it would overload the relays and the Circuit breaker.

You will see that the bulbs are rated with 2 numbers, like 45/65 for low and high beam. If one side shorts out it will pull an additional 65 watts. Instead of drawing 90 total on low and 130 on high for 2 headlights, it will pull 155 with 1 headlight shorted. Thats 25 watts more than the Relay or Circuit breaker is suppose to handle. After 45 minutes of this, you get the flashing.

There could be a timed circuit breaker:

Circuit Breakers The headlights are protected by a circuit breaker in the headlamp switch. If the circuit breaker trips, the headlights will either flash on and off, or stay off altogether. The circuit breaker rests automatically after the overload is removed. The windshield wipers are also protected by a circuit breaker. If the motor overheats, the circuit breaker will trip, remaining off until the motor cools or the overload is removed. One common cause of overheating is operation of the wipers in heavy snow. The circuit breakers for the power door locks and power windows are located in the fuse box.

Headlight fuse location

Headlights do not have fuses. They have circuit breakers (thermal cutoffs) ususally in the headlight switch. Headlight circuits aren't fused because once the fuse blows, you're out of luck. At least with a self-resetting breaker, when the circuit cools off, you again have light.
