Interior Lights Flickering!

2 posts in this topic

Hello,

I have had my Scirocco since November 2009 and had my aftermarket Alpine audio system installed a few days after purchase.

I have noticed that the reading lights and footwell flicker when driving. Also, when the windows drop when opening and closing doors there is a quick dim on these lights too.

We have disconnected the amps from battery but still notice the flickering.

Lastly, if I push my audio system at high volume the dashboard lights dim with the beat of the music and will sometimes shut the car off with a the rev counter & speedometer going wild plus a warning on the dash dsplaying "brake fault return to workshop" or something like that. This problem never occured in my previous VW Golf GTI MK5!!

Has anyone else experienced this flickering or can offer any advice?

I have taken the car to VW and they said that it is normal for the lights to flicker as the Scirocco has some intelligent recharging system.

Is that true??

Thanks

That sounds like a load of rubbish to me pal, I sit on a scirocco dedicated forum most days and have never heard anything of it.

Sounds like a bad earth draining the system to me..:confused:
