it is my opinion that it is either the headlight switch or you dash light dimmer switch is failing. A trick I used with a similar situation was I puchased electrical contact cleaner, spayed it into the problem part, then worked it back and forth and eveything was fine after that. I would give that a try if I were you.

Thanks I installed a new headlight switch and it works great it was a little tricky pulling old light switch out I do not own a boning tool which gets between the trim and the part but used a flat knife so I would not mare the trim and it worked fine you have to take your time
