Default Flashing dash lights

Hello...i'm new here, i own a 06 limited pt with 65k. Just wondering what is causing my dash lights to flash from bright to dim, it only happens when the
headlights are on.
So far I have replaced the rear 02 sensor, the cooling fan ( not Cheap $670.00 including labor ) transmission service, coolant service oil change every 3k
I still need to change out the drive belts, plugs and wires and brakes soon
and also the front 02 sensor. Oh and i forgot brand new Konig 15" wheels

If the dash lights flicker only when the headlights are on, could certainly mean you may be drawing too many amps from your alternator but my real guess is that they're flickering in the daytime also, you just don't notice it. Which probably means you have a bad ground someplace.

By the way, why on earth would you pay $670 to replace the cooling fan? You could pick up a whole new used engine for that amount. I'm definitely in the wrong business ...OH, that's right, I'm retired. Might go back part time tinkering with other peoples cars.

this is a good thread. I noticed the other day that my interior lights were doing the same thing, and they do it during the day time too. i guess it's time to connect the loose ground wire from my exhaust lol.

and to add to this, you might want to check your battery terminals. i noticed the other day that i had some acid build up on one of my terminals so i cleaned it off.
