    Cool 88 Allante headlights flashing?

    I just got an Allante and the headlights don't work. Sometimes all the lights flash on & off like a police car. I have automotive experiance but not any Allante experiance. Anybody have any ideas for a quick fix? Also is there anywhere to see a service manual so I can start learning the diognostic system? It's a nice car and runs great, only 84,000 miles. I hope I can afford to keep this car running and rolling. I enjoy driving it in the daytime right now but would like to drive it at night.

    first and foremost check your battery connections. they should be clean and tight.

    check ebay for the factory service manual or allante source for the diagnostic codes

    Sounds like the twillight sentinel or one of the control boxes. Dick Hussey in Palm Beach at the 'Allante Source" can surely point you in the right direction, you can google him.
    I love mine!

    Re: 88 Allante headlights flashing?

    I love this car more & more everyday. My wife is even starting to like it. Naturally I've checked the battery terminals/connections everywhere. I've noticed the yellow light on the twilight sentinal switch stays on no matter what so I'm guessing the problem may be there. I talked with Dick Hussey on the phone and he said to get the service manual so he can direct me through it to track the problem. He seems like a very nice guy and I will be doing business with him for sure. I won't be able to get back to work on her until next week sometime and a manual may get here soon. {I'm on a shoestring budget so things will be slow} but I will comment and let everyone know how it is going. Thanks for your help, folks!

    You must get a service manual and must get to know Dick Hussey if you hope to remain sane as an Allante owmer!
