Wrx electrical issue
« on: July 16, 2013, 12:42:15 AM »
I'm having a electrical issue with my Wrx basically what happens is when I am driving the dash lights get brighter than usual and the abs, battery and brake lights come on while I am driving which is causing my headlights to flicker on and off.  Also my alarm will randomly go off (aftermarket viper system) I replaced my alternator about 2 months ago and I'm not sure if this has something to do with it or not.  Any help will be greatly appreciated
Thanks,
John

Bad ground? Was the alternator new, used, reman? Check all your engine grounding points for corrosion or gunk build up. Also check any fuses and electrical connectors that you may have connected/disconnected recently. Check your voltage on the battery with the car off and on.
