Hey Guys,

Just wanted to run something by you all - I've got a 96 EFII Fairmont - My low beam headlights run fine - If I go to put them on high beam, they will stay on high beam for a minute or so, then all the lights go out. If I pull the stalk back to low beam, the lights come back on in low beam after a couple of seconds. Any ideas? Possible relay?

Cheers,
-A.

The High beam curcuit breaker is tripping, could be caused, as Happy said, the relay overheating, or a short in the curcuit, or the wattage of the high beam globes is too great.
