Assuming you have the standard tungsten lamps....Remove the headlamp as described in the owners manual. Clean the contacts of the plug and the lamp assembly of any corrosion. Check for a proper ground at the headlamp plug...if you have an ohm meter...should be near 0 ohms.

Had the same problem .
The connector was loose melted the plastic.
Cleaned connector I also cut some thin wire strings from speaker wire
about 1/4" to firm up the loose connector holes, pushed bulb in.
7 months and going strong.
