Five minutes later I return to my car and turn the key, I hear a click and it will not start. With the ignition turned the dash lights are on dimly. The overhead lights inside the car also work dimly. When I try to turn the headlights on, the overhead lights shut off, and the headlights do not turn on. The lights in the dash also flicker when I try to turn on the headlights. Wit

Flickering Lights In my 1997 Maxima, the battery and brake dash lights are flickering occasionally at the same time. This happens after the car has been running for 10 minutes or more. When the lights flicker, the radio cuts out and the headlights brighten. I have had 3 mechanics look at it, and the alternator tested fine according to 2 of them. One said I needed to replace the alternator. One said it was the fuse box next to my battery and he cleaned out all the corrosion and terminals etc. It

First we lost the daytime driving lights. Then after a week or so, the warning beeper would go continuous but only after 10kph. Then tonight, the headlights started to flicker off and then back on and we could hear a relay clicking under the dash. It does it with either the headlights or park lights on. I have got it down to the control module or headlight switch. A little guidance would help me from not spending a lot of money to fix this. Any help is really appreciated.
