Does it flicker at all? How about when you jiggle the start/reverse button?

found the solution it was my starter button. It had stuck in and once I got it out,problem solved.Can you believe that?

That's what I figured. That's why I asked about jiggling the start/reverse button. It's the most common cause of headlight issues.
