FRONT HEADLIGHTS

1995 Buick Skylark

Electrical problem
1995 Buick Skylark 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 108000 miles

ALL THE LIGHTS WORK ON THE CAR BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN THE FRONT HEADLIGHTS STOP WORKING. ONCE I WAS ABLE TO TAP AROUND AND CLOSE THE HOO AND THE CAME ON AGAIN. WE CAN PULL THE LIGHT SWITCH AND THE HIGH BEAMS WILL COME ON.I THINK IT MIGHT BE A SHORT OR SOMETHING. IS THERE A WAY I CAN TEST THIS?

Hi: First, since closing the hood made them work, make sure the plugs are clean and tight. If there is no problem there, replace the switch. It sounds bad too.
