    Hey Y'all!
    Okay so driving home tonight i noticed for some crazy reason my radio lights are flashing? Its very erratic and random. i was driving and noticed it once, and then it did it more frequently. the radio never cut out, no other lights flashed or seemed to be failing. It was strange. the radio would be normal then flash once, and then flash constantly a few time and then it would stop doing it for a bit.

    IDEAS?

    Could be the bulb on it's way out. It could also be an intermittent connection in the wire that goes from the radio to the headlight/dimmer switch. Maybe a bad switch too:dunno:

    yeah, your radio display is failing. super common problem caused by a design flaw. you can have it fixed for $45 with a lifetime guaranty. if you're handy, i've also seen a replacement power board on ebay (made by Dorman) for around $55. if you need the info on where to sent it for repair, let me know.
