Why do my light start flicker off and on at night?


If your lights didn't used to flicker but now they go from
- normal to low - back to normal back to low - in mesured cycles ----> going to be tome for a new alternator. If you drive while using a lot of electrical stuff, major sound system, monitors & dvds, heater, lights etc. --- try looking into replacing yours with a more powerful alternator. (Often) the car companies get cheap on alternators, so they include minimum powered alt. that will work ok so long as you don't add extra equipment and increase the load.

So get your mechanic to confirm that it is your alt. that needs changing, then go from say a 95 amp to a 120 amp. Light flicker problem solved!

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

Code f 71


Check to see whether the laundry drum to the washer moves. If it does move, then the user interface needs replacing. If the drum is locked and will not move, you need to replace the central control unit on the washer.
