Headlight switches can fail, causing the headlights to intermittently stay in the on or off position. Repeatedly turning the switch on and off may temporarily fix the problem. Replacement of the switch is needed to resolve this issue.

leaving parking lot, I realized the lights did not come on after switching them on manually. Had to repeatedly move switch to on and off position to get them to work. Began traveling and 15 minutes later, at a 40mph speed, the lights shut off for about 20 seconds several times.

Headlights wont turn on sometimes and will go out while driving, parking lights and tail lights do not go out, just the headlights.
When turning on headlights, have to keep turning switch on/off before they stay on. Last night they turned off while driving. Had to pull over and turn switch on & off untill they finally came on and stayed on.

Headlights flash on and off, but do not stay on. Also, while driving at night they lights were on and then automatically turned off. It was hard to see and luckily I was close to town. I am still searching for a recall on this problem.

I have the same problem. My headlights will turn on and off by themselves, and sometimes I have to try to turn them off 15-20 times. This happens mostly when there is moisture in the air (I live in Southern Virginia, so like all the time). It's annoying and dangerous, and our Chrysler Dealership has basically said there is nothing wrong. We're switching mechanics.

I've noticed the head lights do not turn off. I have to turn the switch off, on, and then off again to finally make them stay off.

Headlights shutoff briefly @ night. Have to turn headlamp switch numerous times to get lights to go off. Parking lights came on 2 times 1 night. Switch bad.

In Aug 2013 my turn signal light went out and that same night my head lights started flickering and went out. I had to pull over but still couldn't get them to work so I drove home with the brights on. I changed turn signal light and didn't have the problem again until tonight. It went crazy again but this time the brights did to. Parking lights, turn signals, and fog lights were the only things that worked. I left it sit for about an hour and had to get home so I started it back up and they worked fine.
