I have a 1998 golf, when I am driving at night the headlights will just randomly shut off.  The dash lights are still on, cannot understand what the problem is.

check on vortex, only thing i can think of is that your hand brake sensor might be malfunctioning which turns off the headlights when the e brake is engaged

Check your wiring from your fuse panel all the way to the headlights, it could something as a simple as an exposed wire, open connection or partially broken wire. Good luck.
