Hi I bought a 2008 Civic yesterday but I’m having problems with my headlights. They put 2 new bulbs in when I bought the car but after I got home they won’t stay on. When you switch the main headlights on, they come on for about 10 seconds but then go off leaving just the side lights on. It isn’t on auto. Has anyone had this problem or know what it could be?

Are yours bulbs HID's? If so, then they have ballasts to power the bulbs. There is one under each headlamp and to replace them the bumper needs to be removed.

Your symptoms suggest that this is likely to be the root of your issue.

If they replaced the bulbs then surely not HID's...
Beside both failing at the same pattern/time?
Sound like some fancy home light been installed (10s interval suggest this)
