Hi there. It is very likely that you have a ground wire that is coming loose or an exposed wire inside the steering column which is causing your headlight issue. Trying to trace this problem usually requires removing the steering column or the firewall to get behind the dashboard. You might want to contact a professional mobile mechanic complete an electrical problem inspection.
