Lightbulb headlights flickering

I am having a problem with my headlights on my 2k OBS

When I use the turn signals or hit the high beam, the lights sometimes turn off. Happened while I was driving back from the mountains on a really twisty road. Good thing I had driving lights on too.

But anyone ever have this happen to them? Is the turn signal/light switch messed up?

Default not a problem

my car did this at first when i got it. you probably are just accidentally rotating the light switch when you use the brights or turn signal. you just have to be careful when you do either. if you are sure that this isn't it. get your car in immediately, this is a dangerous problem.

I know this is a very old post, but has anyone else experienced this problem as well? I'm getting the same problem and just want to know if there are others that are having the same issue. Thanks

This is usually caused by a bad combination switch.

Default Wiring issues.

Someone please answer this thread. I've looked around and can't find a fix and I am out of warranty.

yup, 99 times out of 100 it is a faulty combination switch. They definitely aren't marvels of modern science...that's why i keep a spare around just in case.
