Unhappy no headlights and intermittent electrical issues

So like 5-6 months ago I went to start my car and the headlights were pulsating along with all the internal and dash lights then other stuff started happening as the days went on like the gauges and indicators were freaking out, wipers going by themselves heated seats turning on themselves, the stereo turning off and on and random dinging. Now the headlights don't work at all so I use my fog lights and the stereo will randomly turn off and on but its become more rare. I don't have the $ too take it in too have it diagnosed so thats why I'm here, I really hope someone can give me some advice.

Default Re: no headlights and intermittent electrical issues


Welcome to the forum. Have you had the car since new or buy it used? If from new, have you had any major damage? Sounds to me like all the problems are related to the PDC (Power Distribution Center) which houses the fuses and relays for a lot of the electrical components throughout your car.

There's been a few owners that have had to replace the PDC when electrical problem popped up.

Bad connections at the battery can cause some gremlins with lights and things but not the kind that your seeing.
