    Are they flickering as in dimming, or flickering as if they were bumped? Mine will shake a bit when I go over a rough patch in the road and it might appear as if they were flickering. Check the screws that hold in the headlamps and make sure they're all tight. If it is indeed a dimming problem, it's probably just a short or a loose wire.

    Its just a quick flicker, not very often, does it on smooth highway. Car has just under 12000 miles on it.

    Maybe upgrade your alternator try a 200 amp and it should flow fine...Remember the car has alot of electronics your alternator might need replacing...

    I thought I was going nuts until I saw this. Mine flicker at at any speed so I figured it must be a wire problem. I took it to the dealer while it was under warranty and got the standard reply that they cannot fix it if it doesn't happen while they have it.

    Its never been a real issue, just kinda strange. Just thought someone on the site that has had this type of car longer than I have would have heard of this before.

    At least I'm not the only one. For a while I thought I was imagining things.
