Usually, the headlights are protected by a self-resetting circuit breaker located in the fuse block. It looks like a big aluminum "fuse". If it is failing or is being overloaded by accessory lights, the headlights will blink on and off. 2/5/09 The headlite switch socket may be burnt due to heat.

I replaced the headlight in my 1993 Chevy S10 and now neither of the headlights work and the high beam indicator won't shut off how do I go about fixing this issue?

Probably have a "dimmer switch problem" The switch is mounted on the side of the steering column and can be replaced easily. Using a test light, 3 wires are at the switch. the wire coming down from the headlight switch that should be hot when headlight switch is activated. The other two are outputs which go to the high or low circuit of the headlights respectively.Easy to fix with a 12 volt test light for troubleshooting.
