Lights flicker After driving about 10 miles, my headlights, brake lights and dash lights flicker. Some times a little, sometimes a lot. Had it diagnosed, they said faulty head light switch. So I replaced it with a new one. Still the lights flicker... Help!

Sounds like a wiring issue, it's actually hard to diagnose without being there, with that many things happening all at once I'd guess a possible problem with the underhood relay/fuse box. On older vans they sometimes short out inside.To be sure you might want to go to your dealer, for about an hours labour they should be able to diagnose it properly. They will only go as far as you tell them to.
If I can be of any more help please ask..
Good Luck.

SOURCE: First we lost the daytime driving lights. Then

the daytime running light module is no good.
it is grounding through other common circuits,the security alarm,and the dome lights which come on when you unlock it.

SOURCE: my instrument panel, parking lights,

relay coil may be a bit weak and is sharing power with the headlight relay. Try swapping the relay with the horn relay or another similar one that is non-essential to operation of the car. If that doesn't work, you may have a loose wire on the headlight switch or at the relay socket.

Battery wont charge, battery/ABS/SRS/BRAKE lights come on while driving and flicker. voltage increases to dash lights/fan speed/headlights periodically.


Get a volt meter, start your car and see how many volts your car is producing while running. Should be around 14 volts. May want to watch the meter for a while since your electric seems to fluctuate. Most voltage regulators are internal of your alternator. If you are getting a lot more or less than 14 volts while running, replace the alternator. If it is not charging, voltage will drop as vehicle runs, until battery is dead.

Brake light flickers while driving down the road.


Check the brake fluid. It may be just low enough to occasionally turn the light on as you hit bumps and it sloshes a little. Add a little brake fluid to the reservoir and check the brake pads all around.
