Why would the headlights go off on a 90 Eclipse after turning on the high beams but play with the switch a little bit and lights turn back on?

most ikly the high low switch is bad you will need to remove the steering wheel and inspect for damage to the switch even if no damage is apparent doesnt mean that's not the problem. buy the switch cluster and plug it into the harness abnd if the solves the problem install.******************* you must replace the whole cluster ......lights wippers turnsignals.....**************** if cluster uis not the problem see service shop.....

pretty much, if your impalas like mine, when you start the car, your headlights will come on, but you should have a little nob to the left of your steering wheel. it should be in the middle, if you pull it out, your lights will stay on, even after turning off your car, if you push it all the way in, your lights will turn off, you can also turn it to adjust brightness of dome lights and dash lights.

on the same switch that turns your head lights should see a little pull switch at the tip, when you turn on the headlights pull it will not work unless the headlights are on

There are little black rods sticking up by the head lights that have a spot to put a screwdriver in. You turn these rods to aim the headlights correctly.

If equipped, turn the headlights on and pull the end of the switch out a little bit.

Your question is a little ambiguous, but I have a 2001 Malibu and it has daytime running lights (for safety). So, my running lights are on during daylight and the headlights automatically come on at nighttime. You can turn the switch to shut them off if need be. I hope that helps!
