Mi exterior and interior lights flicker

Recommended Posts

My lights all flicker when my 2014 Titanium version is running. Not when van is not running.

Anyone else have this issue?

Have you checked the charging voltage? How old is the battery? Have you checked the water in the battery?

Look at the wiring for worn battery cables or a loose connection.  Check out the alternator.

Since it's both the exterior and the interior lights and they only do it when the engine is running, I would suspect a common ground, likely one in the engine compartment which would be more susceptible to engine vibrations.  The TC uses the chassis as the ground connection for EVERYTHING, even the starter and the most important one is a short battery cable between the negative terminal on the battery and the chassis nearby  -  They left a post where it grounds to the chassis as a handy place for connecting jumper cables and charging cables  -  Check that area thoroughly for anything loose

I really appreciate the help. Luckily have warranty for another 2000 miles. Going into Dealer Nov 27th for this and a coupla other items. FYI. I use the TC for Uber 5 days a week.

It's been awhile but the culprit for the flashing lights is caused by the floor fan under drivers seat. I guess its wearing out and loading down the vans electrics.I can create and resolve issue by cranking that fan past the 2 speed mark. 

Problem solved. I'll replace in summer.

Good report, If you haven't changed the filter in a long time the fan could be full of dirt, mine collects a lot of dirt and needs to be cleaned out from time to time.

Have you made a replacement yet? Is everything okay?

 

My friend has a van and there's a constant ventilation problem, it's very hot in his city. Bottom line, he wants to put a similar unit in the casing to keep it cooler inside. I think that's a questionable idea.
