Report: Head Lamp Switch May Fail
Chrysler Town & Country Problem
Average Mileage: 94,446 mi (33,000 mi - 176,000 mi)
A failing head lamp switch can cause the head lamps and/or instrument cluster lighting to flicker or dim. The head lamp switch should have a noticeable click between each position; a "mushy" feel is a strong indication of a failing switch.
My 2000 T&C minivan seems to be haunted. When I turn the headlights on, both headlights flicker on and off quickly, plus all the electrical door locks open and close quickly by themselves repeatedly. Plus the back windshield wiper starts by itself without me turning it on. After about 3-5 mins. of this, however, everything usually stabilizes, and the headlights stay on, the back winshield wiper stops, and the door locks stop clicking up and down. There is under the hood an a black rectangular plastic box that houses many of the car fuses as well as about 15 relays. There is a separate relay for the high beam as well as for the low beam headlights. When the headligts are flickering on and off, the relays are also going on and off very fast making a lot of noise. Starting today 9 15 12, my headlights do not work at all except if I pull toward me and hold the turn signal/high-low beam combination lever. I am not sure if the problem is a loose wire in the steering column, a bad relay, or some other problem. I am afraid of taking it to just any car electrical place because I am not sure they can figure it out even after paying a big diagnosis fee. Any ideas - please contact me email@example.com 949 872 8358. I will report back to this website how I fix the problem if I fix it. Thanks.

The headlights won't turn on each time I turn the switch to luminate. I have to switch it off/on, sometimes 5 minutes, before they will come on. Often while driving, they will also flicker on and off. Checking on a price now to replace the switch.
