Are these xenon headlights? If so, you could have a bad bulb so try swapping the bulb from the non working side to the working side and vice versa. If not, it could be a ballast.

as stated by sillieidiot. is it in both headlights? does it do it constantly every 3 seconds right from you turn it on? or when does it happen? if it happens in both headlights and both flickers at the exact same time then i doubt it's your bulbs. i would think it's an electrical problem.
