Re: Lights surging. Help!

Be more specific.. Right after it starts? After certain time driving? When exactly.

Re: Lights surging. Help!

Carolina Boy, similar problem I noticed with mine as well. ('06 Grand Chereokee, Overland Hemi). Fortunately its only my instrument panel lights when Im stopped at a red light for a few seconds. Nothing crazy but def worth investiagting...when I have time. I've read into it and it may be the turn signal stick requiring replacement.

Replace your Multi-Function Switch. Mine went bad and it would flash when I was driving!
