Most likely a loose wire, or a bad earth, check all earth wires including engine to chassis strap, car must have large earth to battery from chassis and engine, and/or an engine to chassis strap sometimes a relay needs replacing, does it happen the same on low as high beam? if it's ok on low then it's likely the relay probably near the fuses, if it's the same on low, then check the switch and plugs under dash and at light bulbs, light plugs often get corrosion as do the globe tags.

Dipped headlights are intermittent


Look for the RELAYS for the lights. They are usually on the fuse box. Replace the headlight relay.

Motorcycle headlight working intermittently. Starter working intermittently.


Sounds like bad wiring. Best bet is to get a repair manual for the bike. Check the wiring at the ignition, the kill switch and inside the headlight bucket. Sounds like either loose or broken wire.

2003 jaguar xj8 stuck in park intermittently headlights won't work either


Dont think they will be related but when you press the brake pedal with the ignition on can you here a solenoid click under the gear shift? These are common to fail and often don't release the shifter.

Lights, turn signals, horn don't work


Look for a bad ground connection inside the headlight shell (or possibly elsewhere). The other thing that all of the items you mention that are working intermittently have in common is the ignition switch. With the switch 'on', check for battery voltage at the fuses for the headlight, turn signals, horn, etc. No voltage at the fuses likely means a bad ignition switch.

Headlights won't come on intermittently 2005 Dodge Caravan


Quite possibly the switch, Dodge minivans also have a front control module located under the hood, it attaches directly to the underhood fusebox, if a switch doesn't fix it I would look there.
