Possible related problem and fix

This may not be your problem, but it might help. I had a problem with my lights and turn signal lever a few years ago that sounds somewhat similar. Whenever I put on one of my turn signals (either way I think) my headlights would momentarily go off! During the day this was not a big problem, but at night it was most disconcerting not only for myself but for other drivers who would wonder why I was flashing them. It took me a while to figure out that the lights going off was related to the turn signal, but once I did I looked into replacing the offending part. To make a long story short, there are no serviceable parts in the indicator lever - you have to replace the whole thing - to the tune of about $100 more or less. It's actually a very easy replacement to make and I made a writeup of it - just search for "turn signal lever headlight switch problem" (sorry, I can't post URLs yet!). I suspect that your problem might be related to the turn signal lever problem.
