I'll disagree a little bit with some of the people on here. I lose my headlights and my turn signals about once very month to six weeks. It's always the fuses. I have cleaned the connectors and bought different fuses and it doesn't seem to matter. Every time I reach down and touch the fuse corresponding to the light that is out, Voila, it works again.
Just one of the many quirks of owning an old car.
Are any of your fuses aluminum, or are they quality copper/brass Flosser type? If they're aluminum, the dissimilar metals can cause corrosion and lead to problems similar to what you describe.
