SOURCE: overhead lights

check you dimmer switch. the dimmer switch is what controlles the interior dash lights and dome lights. you might have acidently hit the switch and it may have pushed it up from the position it was at. if you push the switch all they up than you interior light will come one even if you shut the car off and pull the key. turn the dimmer switch all the way down and see if it still does it. if not than wait until it gets dark and go outside and turn the swich up until ou can see the dash lights. but remember if you turn it up to far the interior lights will come on.

You need to go to autozone or advance and do an obd2 scan. This will give you codes so you can plot your next course of action. It will tell you if a sensor or something else is faulty

Fom LustyKid:

It appears you have a loose connection somewhere. Re check your battery wires ensure the positive is not loose.
Ensure your negative terminal is tight and clean and check the cable where it connects to the engine block.

Also check your connectins to the alternator, ensure they are clean and snug at the terminals, last but not least, have your alternator check. It could be getting ready to give out.

Soon as I start car sometimes all lights flicker and sometimes while Im driving lights flicker and car shuts off starts back up car is 99 buick lesabre


Check all your ground wires. There will be several wires connecting
ultimately to the negative side of the battery. Usually at least 2
wires are connecting the body of the vehicle to the negative side
of the battery. Generally, the lights are grounded to the body which
is grounded either to the engine block or directly to the battery.

I have a 2000 ford fucas, when lights are on while driving down road, lights shut off or flicker by themselves, at that time the transmission begins to shifts funny and sometimes shifts funny at take off.


It sounds like you may have a loose or broken ground wire somewhere that is causing both problems. The transmission shifting is done electrically. I would get it checked, before you damage the transmission.

My cars engine, battery, and oil lights are on. HELP!


well when the car shuts off or stalls your check engine , oil . battery lights are all going to come on the oil light is telling you there is no oil pressure due to the car not running the battery light is going to come on due to the alternator not pushing any juice because the car is not running and the check engine light also now. check under the car and make sure that your moter did not cut,rip or fray any wires comming from the starter area. this could be a big problem and make lights flicker and the car to run funny.

Idle and hesitation while accelerating!!!


The simptoms you are describing sound like the catalitic converter, that will choke the car and potentally get better as the car heats up. advance auto will scan the car codes for free. a quick check is to start the car and check the exhaust flow out the tail pipe there should be a fair volume of exhaust gasses at high idle when you first start the car at cold.

Guages stop and irratic idle with dimming lights


what probley happened the alternator started to heat up alittle to much and caused the belt to spin on the pulley i would go ahead and get the alternator replaaced as soon as possible. as for the lights dimming and the gauges not working you was running off your battery making the vehicle mess up i would also get your battery checked while your at it.
