headlight relays

  1. Lights go off after 20 minutes of driving

    Please could you help me with my electrical issue which I'm chasing down for a while on my FFR roadster. When I turn on my lights the light switch circuit breaker gets hot and shut down the lights after 20 minutes of driving. Then after a few minutes lights come back and then shut down again...
