headlights won't stay on..

I searched, figured this one someone else should have had too but no luck..

Anyway, they just flash for a few seconds and go off. Makes it tough to drive in the dark..

Guessing something with the security system but it drives fine etc..

More likely a faulty control stem. I would take it to the dealer, should be under warranty.

is it an 07 or 08? What about fogs or brights?

Did you put in higher wattage bulbs? The breaker will trip and stay out untill the load is less.

Could it be a faulty breaker?

Let us know what turns up.

Good luck with it.

took it to the dealer, 3 hours later "we don't have the wiring diagram for your vehicle" so back home. Bought cd with wiring diagrams but it doesn't help me.

Grr, I can't believe nobody has had the issue and I can't believe a dealership wouldn't have the tools to do it either..
