Crown Victoria 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 28,711 miles
: the contact stated while driving at night in normal conditions at no particular speed, the headlights intermittently flashed on and off. As a result of this happening, the dimmer switch was adjusted from dim to bright, allowing the lights to operate momentarily. The local dealership performed diagnostic testing on the vehicle. The problem could not be duplicated, although dealership personnel test drove the vehicle.
