Try your headlight switch. If it is going bad it should affect all of these since they all work of the same switch.

When I turn on my headlights the dash board goes black. The dimmer switch is not the issue


The dash lights are connected to the park lights. Check to see if the park lights come on. If no park lights, suspect a fuse or wiring issue. If park lights are ok, try slapping your hand on the dash area above the instrument panel to see if the lights come on/flicker. If there is a change, the instrument cluster assembly/electronics are the most likely cause of this problem

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

My headlights and dash lights are starting to flicker on my 2002 Buick Century. Once in a great while the headlights go completely off for just a split second and then immediately come back on.


It probably has a bad headlight switch or the connector that plugs into the back of the switch is burned. The burned connector will cause a bad connection.

My instrument panel, parking lights, and taillights flicker simultaneously. they are all ran off the 'park lamp relay' on my 2002 dodge dakota. my headlights are fine. the conflict is intermittent and...


relay coil may be a bit weak and is sharing power with the headlight relay. Try swapping the relay with the horn relay or another similar one that is non-essential to operation of the car. If that doesn't work, you may have a loose wire on the headlight switch or at the relay socket.

Instrument Panel goes on and off, as do headlights


You have to remove the panel to check onthe connections behind it, also check the headlights switch, they tend to burn out.
