View Full Version : Flickering headlights?

Well its actually just my driver's side and it will happen randomly while driving. I've inspected pretty thoroughly and all wiring is intact. Theres no string of events that leads to it flickering, so its very random and happens maybe twice a week. The light will flicker about 3-6 times for about a second, then Service Vehicle Soon light pops up but the headlight will still be on.

Any idears?

I'd suspect a filament in the headlamp bulb is about to burn out. You could also try turning your lights on manually and seeing if the problem persists.. I'd check the bulb though.

Look to see if the filament is starting to form a curve or if there's a burnt spot in it.

Edit: Also, you could try switching the headlamp bulbs from left to right and see if the problem moves.

Maybe the actually housing is loose. Happened on one of my old cars and it turned out that the whole assembly was out of alignment and stuff.
