The headlights and interior lights dim and flicker continuously. The dealer mentioned that gm does not have a fix and there is nothing they can do.
While driving at night in my 2005 chevy Uplander the headlights flicker with no a/c or dvd on which is making me wonder if they are going to fail on me while driving at night. My Uplander only has about 450 miles on it. I have read other complaints about the headlight flickering issue on the 2005 Saturn relays and chevy Uplanders. One person said he was cut off by twice by semi's because of the lights flickering at night making the trucker's think the headlights are being blinked saying it was clear for them to move over.
