Hi, I have a...

Hi, I have a 2008 Mazda B2300,

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your B2300 yourself? What have you tried so far?

Past 2 months I have been getting this headlights flashing , when the Ignition key is out, and the light switch is off.

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

For 1or 2 minutes the light will stay off and then come on for 2 sec

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

The bulbs are ok, as when I have it ON the lights stay ON all times.
