Good evening all. Let me begin by stating that I have had zero time to diagnose this problem, but plan to do some diagnosing in the morning. I’m just looking for somewhere to start looking.
Anyway, the problem is this: I was driving home just a few minutes ago when my headlights flickered and then cut out for a few seconds. They came back on, but I hadn’t driven another 1/2 mile when they flickered again and went off for a further few seconds. This was repeated once more about a mile later, though when I pulled over (first time I was able to do so), they stayed off til after I restarted the car and banged on the dashboard.
Further symptoms: running lights, brake lights, and tail lights seem unaffected. Turning the switch for the headlights off and back on does not affect the issue.
