My headlights recently went out on my 99 r/t. The thing is they work when they are on BRIGHT just not when I turn them on regular. I checked the bulbs and they dont appear to be burnt out. What is going on? Any help appreciated. Thanks.

Try checking the harness behind the switch. I went through three switches because my headlights wouldn't work. It truned out that the harness was melted and causing the switch to fail. The headlights would work for 5-10 minutes then it would flicker on and off. I would only drive with the park lights and the fog lights at night. If it is melted, try checking the vendor forums, Jeff gave me the part number to replace it.

Must be the switch

I just pulled hard on the headlight switch and they turned on. I guess now I'll have to take it apart and maybe replace it. Thanks for the help. Todd

the switches are crap. I've replaced mine all ready, but my fogs went out.

My fogs have also been out a long time. Never could figure out what was wrong with them.
chances are it's your switch. real easy to change. Picked a new one up from the dealer for $60
