Check the archives for detailed instructions. This is a common problem and can be corrected with a little careful soldering work. The problem is cracked solder joints around the relays in the Lamp Control Module. Just resolder and *presto*.

Worked like a charm when I had the problem.

Good luck

: : I am going through a 4-7 minute ritual whenever headlights are needed. They go on but go off and back on at random. All other light sets work fine. Eventually they stay on but next time they are needed it starts all over again. Would appreciate some feedback....

: It sounds like the light control module.I had to replace it after my right headlight would go out intermittently. you can also check the archives on this.I was able to find a good used one and saved $200 over a new one.
