headlights shut off on bumps
 
occasionally within the last two weeks when i hit a big bump, my headlights will both shut off quickly. i checked all of my grounds and they seem tight as do all of my connections. anyone have any ideas?

Do your interior lights turn off too?

Yep Robs right, mine strobe sometime and I fix it instantly by jiggling the ignition switch

it is just the headlights i think. I will have to remember to pay more attention next time it does it.

Do that because I ended up changing my Headlight Multi-Function Switch Stalk. Took 20 minutes to change.

were your lights blinking on bumps? i hope it is something that cheap and easy! i actually was outside my jeep before with it running so i was bumping the drivers side headlight and on one good bump they blinked again.

if they are blinking on bumps or by hitting the lamp...you got a bad connection somewhere

Re: headlights shut off on bumps
 
could be one bad connection sending a bad signal to the front control module or the control module itself?
