    I have the same flickering headlights\dash lights issue and all I can see on the web is BAD ALTERNATOR. I will now have more info when I go to the shop. My Check Engine light came on a few days ago and I have ignored it until now. Thanks for the help folks!

    I have the same problem on an 02 Tracker. I went in for an oil change, and had them check my alternator, battery and starter. They said it was all fine except for my battery. I replaced the battery, and the problem has improved, but is still there a little. Should I have the alternator checked again after I've replaced the battery? Thanks!

I had similar problems, with dash board lights and headlights flickering, and the problem was a dying alternator. After I changed it, everything got back in normal. Also, a bad alternator eventually will kill your car's battery, too. I hope this will help you.

Headlights flicker

this seems most likely a loose connection corrosion or bad connection at one of your fuses or the battery.
start at your battery and check the cables are ok, expecially the Black earth, maybe the connection to the chassis is loose or corroded, ensure this connection is clean. check the connection to the battery is clean and tight. then check the fuse box only do this when the vehicle is swiced off, and spray some contact spray into the fuses a little on each fuse this may resolve the problem.

I hope this was useful

My instrument panel, parking lights, and taillights flicker simultaneously. they are all ran off the 'park lamp relay' on my 2002 dodge dakota. my headlights are fine. the conflict is intermittent and...

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.
