Are HID / Xenon headlights legal in california and if so what are the restrictions? [more inside]
This seems to be changing somewhat these days. I see a lot of models these days that shut them off, but still every day I get messages from an admin at work telling people that their lights are on in the parking lot. This has been killing batteries for nearly a century now. Is there a good reason for what seems to be a design flaw?

Headlights won't turn on, any ideas? [more inside]
The headlights on my 2004 Dodge Durango randomly blink out for a few seconds while I'm driving. As you can imagine, this is a bit unnerving, not to mention dangerous, on a dark road at night. It is not consistent. It may happen a few times one night, then not again for a week. I do not have the automatic headlight feature. It does not seem to be connected to using the brakes, or turn signals, or anything like that. It's not even connected to moving as it has happened while the truck is not in motion. The 2nd generation Durango's do not have a headlight relay, which was my first thought on a part to check. The lights are apparently digitally controlled. I took it into the dealer and of course, the damn lights wouldn't act up there and the on board computer is not reporting any error codes, so the dealer didn't do anything but overcharge me for an oil change and tire rotation. I'm worried the lights will go out for good at a very inopportune time, like on one of our two trips in the next month. Has anybody had this problem, or have a guess as to where I should be looking for the cause?
