Re: my 06 wk overland dash lights surge?

are the lights surging considerably or just a slight pulse? is the frequency really fast or slow, intermittant?

Im thinking this may be a ground concern, I noticed mind doing something a little while ago and told myself that I was going to look into it, but I didn't, and ultimately I don't even remember what I was doing when it was doing it, all I do remember was I was sitting in my work parking lot, I don't remember if the jeep was running or not.

First check all grounds. Then see what happens when you rotate the dimmer. If you don't get a smooth transition from low to high replace the switch.

Does it dim to the feel of your engine?
