Anyone have a link to the wire fix? That would be awesome.

quick question:

my light has flickered for the past couple of days....never actually hitting full brightness....very random....no pattern.....

this morning, i had to come to work early and it is still dark outside....no flicking light, but dimming headlights while driving....no problems starting my car....???

any suggestions?

Most probably alternator dying.

Charge the battery well, then test battery and alternator.

Battery test. Engine off, headlights on for one minute. Voltage across battery terminals should be 12 to 12.5.

Alternator test. Engine running, voltage across battery terminals should be 14 to 14.5.
