Complaint - Exterior Lighting

I NARROWLY MISSED HITTING A PEDESTRIAN IN A CROSSING WALK AT 5AM IN THE MORNING. THE REASON-BOTH OF MY HEADLIGHTS HAD TURNED THEMSELVES OFF. I HAVE HAD A PROBLEM WITH THE RIGHT ONE GOING OFF AND AM ABLE TO TURN IT BACK ON BY TURNING THE LIGHT S OFF, THEN BACK ON. BUT NOW THEY BOTH ARE TURNING OFF AT DIFFERENT TIMES AND IT IS HARD TO TELL UNTIL SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPENS.(IT'S HARD TO TELL AS THIS CAR HAS 2 FOGLIGHTS THAT I NORMALLY KEEP ON, AND THEY GIVE THE ILLUSION THAT THE HEADLIGHTS ARE ON). THE PROBLEM IS NOT IN THE HEADLIGHT ITSELF. I KNOW AS I HAD THE PROBLEM PRIOR TO A FRONT END COLLISION ABOUT 6 MONTHS AGO IN WHICH THEY REPLACED BOTH HEADLIGHTS.THE PROBLEM HAS TO BE IN WHATEVER COMPUTER CONTROLS THE HEADLIGHTS. THIS IS A SERIOUS DEFECT AND SHOULD BE MANUFACTURER RECALL ISSUE BEFORE SOMEONE GETS KILLED.
