1991 525i Low beams intermitent

Most of the time after 5-10 minutes of headlight use the low beams die. Switching to high beams usually gets us to our destination. Sometimes wiggling the high/low switch on the steering column brings the low beams back, sometimes it kills high & low beams until more wiggling is done. Does anyone have useful suggestions of what to check? I have both analog and digital multimeters & good understanding of basic electricity. Thanks in advance to all with suggestions.
