I have had my headlights go out at night so many times I can't count! Both of my kids where in the car almost every, if not every time. I hate that dodge's answer is trade up or call us if it happens again they don't seem to care that they are using my kids as live test dummies! It pisses me off!

Grand Caravan 4.0L

  • Automatic transmission
  • 60,000 miles

My headlights will turn off while I am driving. Sometimes they turn off and on several times in a few seconds and sometimes they just go off and won't turn back on. When they go off and won't come back on, I have to stop the car turn it off for several seconds and then when I restart the car the headlights will work again, at least for a while. This happens to both the highbeams and lowbeams, but not the fog lights. This has been going on for about a year. Sometimes it wont happen for a month or two and then at other times of the year it will happen several times every time that I drive the car. I think that it may be temperature related. It was happening all the time this spring and then when it got really hot this summer it stopped happening for a month and a half. Now that it is fall it is happening again almost every day. I've taken it to the dealer, but of course the lights were working fine at that time and the dealer couldn't find any problem.
