Question about 1988 Nissan 300ZX
Check the wiring, headlamp switch, and dimmer switch. Also very likely a loose connector to the lamp itself, or a lousy ground. Try to replicate the problem by bouncing the assembly by hand, with the headlamps on. If power flickers, then you have the loose connector/ground problem. If not, you may have an intermittent short in the wiring itself.
Also, are both headlamps flickering? Or just one? If it's both, then your dimmer switch/headlamp switch are likely to be at fault. If it's only one, check the wiring.
