Dash lights and headlights keep flickering on and off
« on: Aug 27, 2012, 08:59:12 PM »
My Dash lights and headlights keep blinking on and off. only when the truck is moving.  when it started blinking you can hear a crackle noise every time they blink. I've look for an arc but i cannot find anything. could this be a switch going bad?

There is a clicking coming from under the dash. I found what is clicking and it is some sort of relay.  Do the headlights run through that and if so could the relay be bad.  I checked grounds and cleaned them but didn't change anything.

  • Heyo
Mine did a similar thing. It was the head light switch on the blinker assembly.
