volivier is on a distinguished road
Default Longhorn dually 4x4

My drivers side headlight goes on and off, doesn't have to be a bumpy road, though if its off a bumpy road normally will make it come back on. Took it to my local dealer and they replaced a part (don't have invoice handy) but it didn't fix it. Any idea's? Seems like a loose connection but i've had it to the dealer 3 times and still isn't fixed.

Check the cheap things first. Check that the connection to the light is secure. Check the fuse. Might be one just for that light. If so, switch it with the fuse for the other light and see if the issue follows to the other light. if so, buy a new fuse. If not that, then find the relay, check that the connection is secure and see if you can switch that relay from light to light. If those things fail, then back to the stealership.

Oh and switch the bulb to the other light before any of that. Sometimes a filament can break but still reconnect after a bump.

Im having almost same problem. I start the truck and both lights are on just fine. DRL's and regular lights. Then the next day ( or the trip home ) drivers side is off. I was told by another member on here that there is a connector set of wires thatrun between the two headlights that might need to be replaced. was $20.
