Pulsating lights
« on: October 31, 2008, 11:13:59 AM »

Hey gang, I sometimes get pulsating headlights, if I have the heater blower on along with the headlights, or sometimes if I just have the headlights and brake lights lit.  I've upgraded everythign electrical I can think of as far as the bulkhead connector, battery, battery cables, solid state voltage regulator, and rebuilt 65 amp alternator.  I'm stumped.  What can I do to stop that nonsense?

Try running a jumper from the positive post of the battery to the Blue wire at the regulator and let me know what happens.  Seen this several time before.
