What would cause the head lights and instrument panel to flicker on a 2009 dodge journey


The headlight switch might be the reason the headlights are flickering. Pls try to turn off headlights and see if the instruments still show strange behavior.
If the problem persists, try pulling fuses (one at a time) to see if you can find the circuit which is causing the problem. There might be intermittent shorts / no connection in a circuit other than headlights.

Instrument panel on 2003 Honda CRV starts flashing when headlights are on


Have had a similar experience with my 2000 Ford Windstar. The extra load added by turning on the headlights affects the instrumentation power feed. The illumination flickers and the gages go crazy. Your 2003 CRV may have its original battery which is near death. It took me four batteries to stabilize things and I still get the flickers at night sometimes

My instrument lights and headlights pulsate especially when driving


I would say no to reg or alt ,when you apply brakes there is dimming and that sounds like a negitive grounding problem not at battery,the dimming is caused from a back feed of ground possible.there are what are called body ground straps from battery to body panels and frame.as far as bat or alt advanced auto and most auto parts stores will be glad to check them out for FREE ,good luck

1998 toyota corolla dash and shifter lights out fuse and relay good


sounds like you have a bad panel dimmer control. try turning the control from bright to dim very fast a few times then slowly, do this in a dark area or at night with the headlights on, you should see a flicker of light occasionally. If you don't see any light then it could be either the headlight switch or the dimmer control, if you DO see any light, then it's your dimmer

My headlights on my 94 dakota work fine for a while on brights, but then just the headlights start flashing/flickering. Parking lights and brake lights are fine. It will also flash/flicker in dim lights...


I just had this problem. There was a screw loose on the hi-beam switch. You have to take off the plastic cover on the steering column to get to it. Really simple to fix yourself (5 minutes tops). 4 screws and the turn of a small wrench. Free if you do it yourself, $600 if you take it to the dealer.

2003 Chevy Impala - radio, instrument lights/displays go very, very dim when headlight turn on (auto on feature...sensor on dash). Turning dimming knob up does not help.


There are two possible cause of dim display.

On the deluxe trim level of the Impala the is light sensor. When the sensor mis-calibrated the light will not be at the level you want.

As a test,use a small flash light and aim to the sensor and see is the circuit act according it.

====
The dimmer light is a VERY CHEAP component. I will glow it out with compress air 1st. Turn the dial back and forth 20-30 time in rapid motion will help remove unwanted carbon,

===
Use a eletrical contact cleaner to clean all contacts.
===
Is the headlight in OEM specification?

After market headlights may draw more amperage and cause low power for smaller bulbs.

Head Lights go dim, instrument panel goes dim when I turn on my Headlights


Does it go completely black or just dim? Most displays dim when you turn the lights on to make the display darker so its not too bright. GPS and other displays do this. Do you have any problems with any other of the car's electronics?
