I suggest you remove and check the vehicle's starter. Sometime the normal charge from a battery doesn't generate enough energy if there is a problem with a starter. Reference the headlights..what if anything the keys are in the ignition has to do with the operation of the headlights is unknown. Please note headlights will come on whether or not the keys are in the ignition. Do check the delay switch/leveler that's located at the same spot of the vehicle's light switch.
