    I have the same problem. RPM's don't seem to matter. Currently, it's an intermittent,but frequent issue. I replaced the battery, no help there.

If this is a manual transmission, this is normal. Your engine is running the alternator and the altrnater runs the battery. When you disengage the clutch, the alternater slows down causing the car to run of the battery itself.

You most likely have a bad headlight relay or a bad headlight switch.

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

Headlights flicker on and off at night on my 99 buick lesabre


the headlights Flicker could be caused by the alternator. Local auto parts stores will test this vehicle charging system with their mobile analyzer and it will determine the problem...
The alternator generates direct current for recharging the battery and for powering vehicle electrical loads.

Lights flicker


When my headlights started to flicker at night, I soon found out it was the battery. It died one night sitting in a friend's driveway with the radio and headlights on. My battery was over 5 years old at the time, and the tow truck driver said I was lucky to have it work that long. I purchased a new battery and the lights no longer flicker at night. Just a suggestion. Hope this helps you.

HEADLIGHTS ARE FLICKERING WHEN DRIVING AT NIGHT ALSO ONE FOG LAMP IS OUT ON THE PASSENGER FRONT IS THIS RELATED OR DO I HAVE A RELAY OR HEADLIGHT SWITCH GOING OUT


right and left front fog lights do not have separate circuits, so that is a bulb or wiring issue.

Flickering is more likely the relay than the switch. Do the high beams flicker? They are on a different relay. I will paste the diagram, but the resolution will be poor :o(

2004 grand am headlights come on while sitting in


The only thing that I can see and should make sense is the body control module controls the ground side of the headlight relay.

Maybe the control module is defective or the wire to the relay ground side.... grounds itself somehow which would also cause the flickering.

The battery light is flickering on and off on the dash. I put a new battery in and had my alternator checked out(its prefect) When driving at night my headlights dim and brighten.What could this be?


The regulator in the alternator is most likely the problem.
The alternator could be charging.......just not correctly....... the flickering headlights are showing a varying voltage.......and with the charging light flickering too..........99% chance you need a complete rebuilt alternator.
