ford lighting flicks on and off while driving

have had two fords with this problem. One, a 90 cougar, which we don't have anymore, but the other is a '88 bronco. The headlights and dash lights go off and on while driving. They stay off for say, 5 seconds or so and then come back on. Then a few minutes later do it again. We never figured out what was causing the cougar to do it, but now we need to figure out why the bronco is.. HELP. Everything else works fine.

Take a hard look at the headlight switch. Ford had a lot of problems with them, especially the plug getting hot and melting.

Also they had a circuit breaker in the headlite switch that goes bad, either way your problem sounds like the switch is most likely the problem.
