Hi, My name is Jay

The headlight switch has a built in circuit breaker that will trip and reset after it cools. This in my experience is cause by the headlight switch gone bad. I would recommend replacing the head light switch and bulbs in headlights if they have not been replaced yet. The bulbs will cause excessive draw on light switch and cause the circuit breaker in switch to get weak and trip too easy. Replacing switch and bulbs will fix the problem.
