Welcome, I'm Chris and independent contractor that helps customers here.

Do the running lights flicker in all light on settings, except the off position?

Are the interior lights effected?

Thanks for letting me assist you. I hope I met all your expectations.

As mentioned in my first response, I would stay in contact with you. I've noticed you have not rated the post. So I assume you were not pleased with my help. I hate that you have spent money to get an answer but left not happy. Can you tell me why, or can I help more. If its more help you need just reply and we can pick up where we left off.

Been busy with the holiday coming up. Will have to do some more trouble shooting regarding the running lights flickering whether the headlights are turned on or off and also checking the interior lights. Suspect some short or drain somewhere since the batter keeps dying on us (but we have not driven the car enough to keep it charged either). Was hoping for a more specific response (i.e. check the running light fuse or relay and remove / replace as needed..if that does not solve the issue it could be a faulty turn / headlamp signal on the drivers column) Although understandably, electrical issues are hard to solve.

I will be able to start providing some answers to resolve this once I can get just a little more information from the previous questions I asked.

Reply when ready.

on the running lights flickering only in the on position. With them turned off, no issue. Interior lights are not affected at all during any operation (i.e. Work as designed)

Thanks, ***** ***** headlights or parking lights on. While flickering, monitor the voltage on the 10amp tail fuse. Is it steady and matching battery voltage or pulsing?
