 Description of the problemHid headlights flicker and then turn off. No rhyme or reason; cold weather and hot weather. Headlights will eventually flicker and turn off. I can manually flip the headlights switch off and then on again and they will come back on. Once they come back on, they can stay on for another few seconds or minutes, but they will eventually flicker and turn off again. Most times it's just one headlight at a time because i don't give it enough time before turning it back on before the second one goes out. Both have gone out before at the same time. In my 12 mile route to work in the morning, i may have to turn my headlights on again about 25 times at its worst. Sometimes they will stay on and sometimes it won't even flicker at all. No rhyme or reason. It's dangerous for the obvious reason but also people think you are flashing your lights at them. Can cause road rage in people¿so what's worse? Driving dangerously with no headlights or someone getting angry b/c you keep flashing your headlights at them? Dangerous no matter how you look at it. Also police may think you are trying to warn people about them by flashing my headlights! As far as i can tell right now, it's just the low beam hids, not the high beams and not the yellow daytime running lights. Voltage has been tested and they say it's fine at 14 volts for both headlights even though they were flickering/turned off while being tested. Shop wants me to replace hid headlights altogether which is over $300 not including labor. Has been happening intermittently since i bought the car used in 2009. Is getting worse as mileage goes up it seems. 87,000 miles as of 12/23/2015. Purchased the car in feb. 2009 with 20,000 miles. Lights will flicker in idle or while driving at any speed. Also loud buzzing from back speakers at times and stabilitrak light comes on and then will go off randomly.
