Default head lights doing weird things

interesting problem i have run into but havn't really figured out what it could be.... so sometimes when i turn the key on but not start the head lights come on very dim but on even though my light switch is turned off and then when i start my truck it will either shut off or flicker as im driving, also my brights flicker after i have them on for awhile. i don't have any of these problems when i put it on accesory... so what could the issue be? relay? the light switch? voltage regulator??

I'd say to start with the switch first, but trace your wiring. It may be a series of issues with that circuit.

There are no relays. Its direct power. I agree, start with the headlight switch then the multifunction switch (aka turn signal lever)
