    Default Random flashing headlights ?

    Has anyone had this or heard of this one ? Headlights have been flashing on & off for some reason whilst driving ! Iv checked alternator as advised on here the other week & it checks out OK. When it happens a relay behind the glove box clicks so iv took the box out, today it finally did it again so iv managed to find the one clicking. Its the relay for the windscreen fast clear ? Iv had to take it out now so i could drive without randomly flashing when it felt like it, Has anyone any ideas as to why this is so ? Iv got a cd manual but still cant work it out :-(

    Bad earth connection somewhere possibly? I remember older fords and vauxhauls used to be terrible for bad earth connections, they threw up some wierd and wonderful faults sometimes. Put indicators on and sidelights would flash, put window wiper on and indicators would flash. Hope it turns out to be something as simple as this for you.

    Could be wrong???, i think the headlights flashing on/off on there own accord may have something to do with CIM, this is the control unit behind the steering wheel. I remember when i worked as a tech at Vauxhalls, the REC would switch on the reverse/brake/fog lights when the car would be parked and locked up on the customers drive etc.....
