Litronic help...

Over the last couple of weeks both my headlights are getting harder and harder to turn on. Meaning... I have to turn them on and off a few times to get them to start.

Is this a sign of both bulbs going bad?

Do I need a new ballast?

Do they use a starter like a fluorescent?

Would hate to replace both bulbs and find out it is something else...

Any help is appreciated! Thanks!!!

Most likely the switch. It's pretty common to get worse and worse before it wont turn on at all

The Switch? Really?
