: Flickering lights?

09-27-11, 12:23 AM
Dash lights, headlights, fog lights, brake lights, information center lights, dome lights, radio lights......they ALL flicker any ideas on this ?

Also I got a clunking under my feet as in drivers side near the pedals that comes and goes, usually it appears when the road gets unsettled.

Also is there a way to pull the codes without using the info center? Mine is not functioning properly so I cannot pull the codes, is there another way ?

Cheers all and I gotta say I just love this damn car !

not sure but the flickering lights sound like bad grounds.

behind/under the dash kind of bad grounds? i am going to do the front brakes this weekend so maybe I find something broken or loose to make that clunking sound ....fingers crossed

Put the front end on stands and get under there and give it a good look see. Grab each wheel and shake hard. As for the grounds, check your FSM, start with common grounds to the lights and go from there.

If DIC is not working you can try to pull codes with scanner. Pop in to a shop near you if you don't have one.

Flickering lights (thruout the entire car) solved with a new alternator, front end issues were related to a bad wheel bearing!
