Question Bright headlights go off randomally

My bright headlights will go off randomally. It even does this when the truck is off and not moving. They go off for 5-15 seconds and then come back on automatically. When the brights fail, the dims still work. Any idea what would cause this? Thanks.

Re: Bright headlights go off randomally

I think it is probably just your high beam switch. If it is an intermitten problem.
Unless this happens at an exact monent all the time, like if the light have been on for five minutes then they go off, and do they come back on after a certain amount of time. or if you fiddle around will they come on and off

I hadn't changed the bulbs lately and they used to work fine so I doubt that would be the problem. They just started doing this one day.
