I have a 1999 Wrangler SE, very clean slim to no rust, garage kept, and well maintained.
Here is an issue I am having. I will be driving for about 30 minutes or better at night and the headlights go out. Tail lights and markers and dash lights stay on. This last about 5 seconds or enough time to say Crap! Whatever comes first. Then the lights come back on. If I pull the light switch on and off nothing happens, headlights still stay dark. The headlights come on as mysteriously as they went off. Here is what I check so far. I checked connections to the headlights. I checked ground wires connected to the body. I see a little corrosion by the negative post on the battery, but as for the other grounds to the body they look clean. Haven’t had time to poke my head under the dash yet, but I was wondering if anybody experience this issue before, and if so what was the fix.
It worked, replaced the switch with a OEM part. No troubles since.
It surprised me that when I replaced my OE headlight switch with an OE replacement bought from Autozone, the replacement was identical... right down to the little blue inspection sticker on the switch with the QC inspector's initials... same initials & handwriting. That's what you call an OE switch replacement!
