As long as your battery is fully charged and your alternator is working properly it more than likely is a bad connection. Check connections at the lights, under hood fuse block, grounds and possibly the switch.

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.

When car is at idle theres no problem, but when rpm go up all interior and headlights flicker.


Do the lights flicker brighter than they are at idle or dimmer? If they flicker brighter, voltage regulator in alternator is suspect. If they flicker dimmer, you likely have a loose power cable either on the battery or on the fuse and relay center or on the alternator.

With engine running either idling or on the road the all lights, dash , headlight etc pulse and momentarly will go out. split second it has a new alternator and battery


check the battery cables away from the battery. The ground battery cable may be loose at the engine block or the positive cable may be loose at the starter solenoid on the starter. Does the engine shut off or the lights just flicker?

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.
