Headlight Flicker

Hi All, Driving the other night I noticed that my headlights seem to flicker maybe when I hit a bump but can't really say that for sure. They seem to go off and on but not all the way off before they come back on. I know that Zukes have bad ground problems and could this be it? Don't really know where to start looking. Thanks. Jim

Re: Headlight Flicker

My '88 started doing something like that about 3 years ago. Turned out to be some kind of short in the steering wheel switch. It eventually started smoking and then went out all together. I think it cost me about $60 for a new switch. Not junk yard around Bangor, ME had used ones so I had to order from the dealer in Augusta.
