Angry Volkswagon Fox Headlights

DEAR FRIENDS,
I OWN A 1987 VOLKSWAGON FOX. FOR ABOUT SIX MONTHS NOW THE HEADLIGHTS WHEN DRIVING WILL GO FROM BRIGHT TO DIM AND BACK AGAIN. IT HAPPENS NON-STOP WHILE DRIVING. I HAVE FINALLY HAD IT WITH THIS AND WANT TO FIX IT, I BELIEVE IT MAY BE A SHORT; IF NOT A VOLTAGE PROBLEM OR SOMETHING ELSE. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME FIGURE THIS OUT. I NEED MY FOX BACK IN GOOD HEALTH.

1. Please don't post in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. It's the internet equivalent of yelling & we don't like to be yelled at.

2. Does the position of the dimmer switch have any effect on the high/low beams?

No, the dimmer switch has absolutely no effect on the headlights.
May I ask why?

Because it is a potential source of the problem.

Have you tested the output of the alternator? You might have an intermittent connection problem or a charging system problem

Check my post "The Basics" for some ideas on how to test it using a digital meter.
