No it literally flashes on then a slight loss of power at the same time a bit like it is trying to stall and lights go out. Full beam is all that's left working until I stop and restart engine.

Thank you. I would start by checking the battery cable connections. Especially the negative cable to ground. Make sure that they are clean and tight. If they are and if the battery connections are good then you need to have the battery and alternator load tested. If those are all fine then it may be a failing control module.
