Is it a temperature sensor wiring fault?

Or could be faulty thermostat?

headlights come off in less than two minutes, to rough check the thermostat start the car and feel the top and bottom rad hoses if they warm up togeather the thermostat is dodgy normally one should be hot and one cold untill the thermostat opens to allow flow
