Idle air control valve may be sticking. Remove the valve and clean it with some carb cleaner. Also clean the passages in the throttle body.

its probably the combination switch on the steering column, as these vehicles don't have a relay for the headlights. The most common problem with the headlights are all the grounds that are used. Check all your headlight grounds, and if you still have a problem, its your combination switch.
