Recently my headlights, dash lights, radio readouts and backlighting, dome
light, tail lights, etc... have all begun pulsating intermittently and at a
steady rhythm. Revving the engine a little does not stop the pulsating,
nor does it affect the tempo of the pulsations. Then all of a sudden it'll
stop pulsating and everything will be normal. This happens even when the
A/C and radio are off.
Now I don't know for sure if this is what caused it, nor am I 100% certain
that this is when the problem started, but a few nights ago I was asked to
give someone a boost with some jumper cables. I'm not sure if there's any
way that could have affected anything, but it was after that when I first
actually noticed the problem, I think.
I checked the battery cables and they're good and tight... so tight I can't
even move the sleeve around the post with my hand.
My friend has a '98 Taurus and he claims his lights pulsate, too, but I'm
not sure if we're talking about the same thing or not.
Any ideas at all about this one?
