Driving on a country road the headlights went out. Hit the dimmer switch and they came back on. It did this about three times. Found out that if we tried to use the dimmer switch that the lights went out. Then it got to the point that the only way that you could use the bright lights was to hold the switch. Two weeks later went to the grocery store turned on the blinker to turn and the lights went out again. Had to pull the light switch on and luckily they came back on. Tonight we took the car out and the lights kept going out. This is on a 2004 Buick Century.
