Default Flickering lights

Anybody else have flickering headlights and instrument panel lights? I just noticed that happening last night. Weird...

Check battery connections and ground connections. Could be the multifunction switch since it controls all of those - try wiggling it.

There are a few posts around about flickering lights so do some searching.

Was it just a flicker or pulsing? Pulsing could be alternator/voltage regulator.

Sure go check out what other people have done on this web site. Then get some good heavy wire, probably 8 gage and clean your battery termanals, and the put in some more grounds to the car frame. Two or three would not hurt. This problem can be taken care of, just do some good grounds. Yes the flickerting lights can get to you after a while, but it can be fixed.
