Do you have the fog lamps on at the same time? If yes, don't use them.

If not, it could be the headlamp switch. Something is drawing too much current.

All lights flicker on my 1998 mystic

I wonder if all the lights flicker?

Some headlight bulbs aren't held into the reflectors as securely as others and can appear to flicker due to vibration, bumps and so forth. In this case the other lights will not flicker. A similar effect can happen when the bulb connections aren't positive.

If all the lights flicker it must be the voltage that is fluctuating due to poor wiring connections or a fluctuating charge rate/alternator performance.

Slight flicker with headlights. Replaced battery which was needed. Headlights still flicker. Had changed out original lamps with brighter lamps. Could this be the problem?

Bad plugs on the bulbs.Bad grounded lights wiring.Bad alternator ground.Bad alternator charge.Bad lights switch.Also ,the new lamps may show more sensibility in voltange change or put more pressure on a older bad wiring link.

Why do my headlights flicker off and on i own a 1966 mustang

Best guess would be corroded ground wire connections to body and maybe a bad regulator off of the alternator/generator. In that respect the power would not be constat from the charging system and the bad ground may make you lights flicker from no clean connection.

Sounds like you may have a short where the fusebox is. Take out the instrument panel and check the circuitry for black spots or and type of arcing or shorts.

Check your relay but most of the time it's your light switch that has gone bad. The swithch heat's up after a while and then that when the flickering happens if not stop working. Good luck and hope this helps
