Here recently I was having an issue with my 2010 R/T where all electronics in my car would cut out/flicker while I was driving down the highway. I have found a few threads of others asking but not figuring it out and either selling or living with the issue. Living in a smaller town where most driving is on smaller state highways with usual wildlife and traffic, this was be a huge issue at night since I would lose power to my headlights. I looked everywhere I thought I could and eventually got frustrated and parked my car for a good 2 months and about gave up on it. Well I just got back into it and finally resolved the issue. There are two things that can cause this issue. At the fuse box in the trunk, there is both a power and a ground wire going into the side of the box. Check both wires for loose connection. In my case it was the ground. I drove around and had no problems for a good 30 miles, but then it's started again, just not as bad. So I went back to the house and checked the power and ground again but they seemed plenty tight so again I was scratching my head. I decided to check out the fuse box under the hood and there I found the positive post on passenger fender to be loose as well! I tightened it up and fell in love with the car all over again! Problem solved! Well I'm sorry for being long winded but I hope this helps someone out. Check these wires before taking your car into the shop and dropping some serious cash!

That happend to me years ago. It kinda turned me into a car guy. I wanted to know what the issue was. I started looking online and at the car. Only to find a ground that needed to be locked down. I was thinking water or something had got to my car. All the local shops wanted $200 plus $ to look at the issue. Happy I know what to look for now days. Sometimes its the little things.... Good to hear you found what the issue was.

Yeah it was very frustrating to try to track down. And it being in the most simple of places is what made me over look it time and time again. I love doing these things myself but am lacking one of the most important ingredients...patience! With age I hope I find some because life would be a lot easier I think lol
