Customer Question

When driving with my headlights on at night, whenever i switch to my high beams they burn fine for a couple of minutes, but, then switch back to low beams on their own.

If you hit the high beam switch again, do they come back on high beam?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
If i don't hit the switch, they'll eventually come back on.....However, i usually hit the switch, (back to low beam), so I don't blind the next guy driving the other way. If I click the switch again right away to burn the brights it doesn't work! But, if I wait a couple of minutes it will work when i switch them on again. But, then the cycle repeats itself!

Are you sure they switch back to low beams, or do the high beams simply go out?
