Headlight and dashboard lights flash intermittently, approximatley every 2 seconds. Had it looked at twice by aw golden Pontiac in reading pa and was told my car "was known to do that, and it can't be fixed." Also, I can leave it there "for the mechanic to drive it home at night, so he can see what I'm talking about." My car does not have this problem everytime I drive at night, maybe every other night, but it is no-stop when it starts. Drivers in front of me hit their brakes, because they think I'm flashing them. I can see this causing a problem if I have to deal with a person having road rage.
