Headlights flicking

Hey guys so when I first bought my jeep after a couple weeks of driving my headlights would flick in then off then stopped working. So checked everything and ended up replacing the switch btw I'm in a 1998 tj se 2.5l. Anyway it just started doing it again. I really don't think it would be the switch again would it? When it's starts flicking on an off it I actually push the switch in and pull it out real fast it will stop for about 30 minutes give or take some. Help please have no idea. Thanks ahead of time.

There is no headlight relay in a Wrangler TJ. Replace the headlight switch which is an easy inexpensive job, that will fix the problem.

And you can do the headlight relay mod, search on here, there are a few write-ups on it.
That will take the load off the headlight switch.

Again, there is no relay in the TJ's headlight circuit. Just replace the headlight switch which will take care of the problem.
