Change trans fluid & filter. If you have someone do the work, have them flush the system to get all old fluid out. Sounds like a valve body issue and a fluid & filter change should solve the issue.

I have the same problem....and found the shortage occurs when I adjust the steering wheel up and down. I'd had to drive with the steering wheel in the highest position in order to keep the headlights on. If I adjust it, my headlights (and only the headlights) go out.
Being unemployed, if someone has an inexpenisve solution, I'd sure appreciate it!

It could be a loose heat shield on the exhaust. How ever I have seen the inspection plate loosen at the torque convertor housing. There may even be a loose bolt on the flywheel.

Could be the fuel pump... letting the fuel drain out of the lines so it has to refill when you crank it. Try turning the ignition switch on for about 10 seconds and back off. Then do it again... several times. This will purge ahe air out of the lines. See if this helps. Mike

Hi, with thse symptoms, the most likely cause is a failed connection or dimmer switch, but the headlight switch is also a possibility. Your dimmer switch is integrated into the control wand. I cannot seem to find the instructions for removing the wand, but I think you remove the clamshell from the column and then unscrew the wand assembly from the column. You can test the switch by leaving the cable attached and back-probing the connector with a 12 volt test light or voltmeter. The light green wire should be hot when the headlights are turned on. Leave it on and then probe the red and purple wires. The purple wire should be hot when the switch is on low beam. The red wire should be hot when the switch is on high beams or flash position. If there is no power on the green wire, the headlight switch has failed or the green wire is disconnected or loose. Please let me know if you have any questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
