    The lights randomly go out, usually when changing from high to low, or low to high beam. If I jiggle the handle back and forth, they come back on sometimes. Sometimes they do not, then I have to pull over and shut off and restart the engine then they come back on.

    Love my car but I dimmed my lights while driving only to lose all headlights. I switched back to high beam and low beam again and they came back on. This has happened several times so I only drive with low beam lights. The switch in the steering column seems very mushy when you switch from Low to High. I have not had it diagnosed because I kinow I wont be able to afford to fix it.

    I was driving early one morning and it was dark out. All of a sudden my headlights went out. I hit the dimmer switch and they came back on, but while driving home the same thing happened again. I took it to one garage and he could not figure out what the problem was. The next time I drove after dark, the same thing happened again. I took the car to different garage and found that the multi function switch in the steering column was bad and replaced it, costing me almost $800.00 I felt this was a huge safety problem and should be recalled especially after reading on line of other people with Impala's having the same problem. I called General Motors and of course they denied there being an problem with the switch.
