It's me again.Cool Driving last night, headlights kept going on and off for the entire 20 minute drive. This has happened several times before. The needle on the charging indicator was going nuts. Also, you could here a "click" every time the lights went out. HELP!Laugh Thanks.

Remember that electrical items need both power and good ground. I know the car is pos ground and look for grounding straps that could be bare braided wired that don't connect properly,

Tom, once again, you were right. Frayed wire, barely touching at the license plate light. Cleaned it up, the problem went away. THANKS! If only the folks in D.C. were as wise and helpful as you.Cool
