Weird Light Problem

Ok so i go out to my Jeep this morning after work its -5 degrees, do i start it up let it run for about 5 minutes. I try to turn my head lights on NOTHING! I dont have any other way home so i just switch on my aux lights. About half way home (12 miles) my head lights come on.

I havent checked my fuses yet, its to damn cold and dark out to do it, im going to though. Any ideas other than fuses?

Thank you.

headlight switch is where I would start - I've had them get hot & turn off, but never as you describe. Start there though - it sounds like you may have a short - a rubbed wire touching something that driving bounced it back & let the lights come on??

I would still bet it's the switch though - they are cheap & sometimes stuff happens.
