Sounds like you have a ground issue. Try the easy stuff first. Since the problem is only when the headlights are turned on, locate the ground wire for the headlights coming off the plug and trace it to where he connects to the body or other round point. Even if it looks good, remove the attachment and clean it thoroughly and reconnect.
