Head light issues please help

My head light flickers on and off I've checked the fuse and the connections as well. I've cleaned and greased the connections too just running out of ideas anything will help

did you check all three stator leg connectors? The stator trips the relay witch then in turn lights the headlight.

Does it do it on both Hi & Low beams?

with no stator you would still have battery power right?

I would put a new fuse in, my truck had a fuse recently that was ok, but once you put a load on it it would act intermittent.

The stator triggers the headlight relay, so if one or all of the connectors are slightly lose the headlight will flicker on and off
