    Vehicle : Vectra

    Trim : Sri

    Engine : 1.8 vvt

    Year : 58

    Default Flickering headlights

    Picked up my vectra today it's a 58 plate and overall a lovely car but I'm a little concerned about the headlights they seem to flicker but only when I'm accelerating and steering at the same time not separately ie just turning the wheel doesn't cause it to happen ???

    Excuse the pun but can anybody shed light on this for me lol


    Many thanks paul

    the flickering is generally noticable when your turning the steering wheel whilst stationary as the electronic PAS system takes massive amounts of load/power to run - this makes it noticable ... as others have said once revs are higher and the car is moving you have additional current generation and it doesnt happen .... if you had the older radio display on the car you could also see this flicker at the same time as the headlights
