Ceiling Lights go out after a few sec

I installed my Harbor Bay ceiling fan and the fan itself works perfectly fine, however when i turn the lights on, after a few seconds the lights turn off. I can turn the switch off then back on, and the lights turn back on, but then off a few seconds later. I checked the light connections inside the fixture and they appear to be ok (they are held together by a cheap looking crimp) and the light bulbs i used were the ones that came with the unit. Any ideas?

Faulty current limiter maybe. Usually they just make the bulb blink but they could cause your problem also.
