Sounds like you have a bad bulb, as the filament burs out, it can act just as you describe. If you look carefully at the filament, you may even see that it is broken.

I have a '05 Honda Accord. I have been having the same issue on and off for over a year now. I can't tell you how many headlights that I have purchased. When I go to replace the headlight, which it not the easiest, If I remove it and reinsert it, it will work. It will go off and on for weeks and then burn out altogether. It is so frustrating. I wish I knew what the problem was. Please let me know if anybody has a solution!
