You have a bad mutifunction switch or headlight switch is going bad and is over heating then cooling off comming back on Have a mechanic check it cause there are other things that can cause this. Since it's not blowing a fuse at this time I would say the head light switch is bad.

Can the 2005 Chrysler Crossfire Limited Coupe automatically turn on the low beam head lamps at night?


No. It has auto lamps.all newer vehicles have them. Some you can turn off. You have to have the light switch in the dash. If it is in the turn signal switch/ column. Your out of luck.

2006 Chevy HHR low beams do not work in auto or on positions. However, low beams flash when locking/unlocking the car using the remote. Also, high beams, parking lights, and turn signals all work fine. All...


Your running lights which come on when you are in drive should be the ones flashing when you use the key FOB to lock or unlock vehicle not your head lights. Although unusual maybe both low beam head lights are burnt out or a bad ground, that the only thing that makes sense to me.

Head light problems sometimes they will not shut off sometimes they (low beams) come on by themself high beam will not shut off


Are you sure there not running in daytime running light, when you think high beams are on

Also, there is sensor on the dash, usally on the speaker grate, that senses night and day. In the daytime your headlights will automatically come on when your car is in drive, and be on the high beam bulb, but dimmer than regular. At night, or in low light conditions, your lights will automatically switch from daytime lights to regular low beams. And yes, even when your switch on the dashis turned off, your lights work automatically.

To turn of the auto setting, just push the override button for your dome light, in and out 3 times, you should hear a chime, and your lights should shut off. This setting resets everytime you shut your vehicle off. Or to turn the auto setting back on, push the over ride button 3 more times.

97 suzuki alto main beam on head lights not working but high beam fine


If there is only one headlight bulb you have to replace the whole bulb. Some cars have a separate high and low beam, some are together. Low beams usually burn out first since they get used more often and unfortunately have to be replaced even if the high beam still works. Hope that is helpful!

1997 town car, low beam head lights don't work and the high beams only works on flash pull


Try headlight relay, could be fuse as headlight flash is on different circuit i think, or could be hi-lo beam switch, good luck
