my 2005 magnum has an issue when the car is at an idle the light are fine but when it hits 1000 to 1500 rpm it starts to flash and not only do the headlights flash but the dashlights and the emergency flash button flashes as well. no non lighting connceted items flash like the radio. I have had the battery and the alternator tested and they both work fine anyone know what else it could be.

I was wondering if anyone has ever experienced a default drivers side seat putting low level electric impulses through them while they drive. People think I'm crazy when I talk to them about it. I am thinking of getting rid of My 06 Dodge Magnum because no one can find the problem. Please I

Not yet replaced my alternator battery and headlights and I still have not found the issue. The dealer in my area tested it and told me the the old battery I had was bad solved problem for a bit but 6 months later it came back an the alternator is still testing good so has to be something else. Let me know if you figure it out please.

i will let you know if i figure it out. i wonder how many other 2005's have this problem? it reminds me of my mothers old 1976 duster that the lights died coming home one night after shoping. me and my sister were very young and we held two pen lights out to let traffic know we were there. i guess i better keep two flash lights in the car!!!

i said i would get back with ya after i had it figured out! go to your dealer and its going to cost you for 1 hr service. there is a service bullitin out for the flickering issue. i told the service manager that i thought it was in the ecm and i was right. the flash file# that you need to give your dealer is 18-003-05. my car is fixed from the flash file update. have a merry christmas

My wife's 2005 Magnum has same problem with lights dimming. So the fix is to take car to dealer for a software update and pony up 70-90 bucks to fix their defect?
