This may be caused by one of three things. Your headlight relays may be bad, your ON-OFF switch may be bad, or your BCM may be bad. I would first start by swapping out the relays. If no luck there, I would then have the vehicle scanned with a DRB III scan tool. That should tell you if you have a bad switch or BCM.
