    My 1996 F-350 headlights keep going out. The relays on the plowside have been replaced recently and even after that they keep going on and off. I think it has to be a relay unrelated to the plow because even with the plow off the truck low beams flicker. I will start the truck the lights may or may not turn on and then after 15-20 minutes they start turning on and off randomly and sometimes do not return on. Dont have an owners manual so i dont know whats under the hood any help is appretiated.

    There should be a relay in the power distribution block under the hood.

    We have a lot of '96-'97 F450 trucks at work that have had this problem. The headlight switch itself has been the problem everytime. Any autoparts should stock it for cheap.
