    Flickering headlights

    I noticed my interior lights and headlights were flickering ever so slightly. It has never done this before. No warning lights etc.
    Any suggestions why it does this.
    Regards
    Lee

    When did this happen, when starting car?

    Battery on its way out?

    Battery or alternator would be 2 things to check.

    I've now got the same fault after changing my side lights out from std ones to 501 LED's. slight flicker no matter if the engines running or not or if its just side lights on alone or together with headlights. Any ideas?
