    check your fuse and relays to headlights also check the bulbs. have they been replaced recently? wrong bulbs can make them act weird which can lead to confusing diagnosis

    Just a word of advice, check the fuses again with a test light while the lights are turned ON! Might be worth your time. Dont spend a lot of time checking the relays.
