When in park with the engine running or not, my lights flicker on and off. Its like the sentinel on the dash is going, but not sure. When I shift into gear its fine. HELP!

I've had this happen before too. Did you do the DRL disable mod?

Right, but you've done the DRL mod, yes?

Interesting. I hate running DRLs so I've just ignored it by turning on the parking lights the few times it does happen. I've also seen it where I shut the engine off and the headlights stay on until I open the door or turn on the parking lights then turn them off. Strange...

Yes it is weird. It only happens at night when my headlight are on and the car is in park. If I turn them on manully they are fine. Maybe I will out the DRL disable back in, but I don't know that it has anything to do with my problem.

There have been a couple of reports of defective light sensors causing a similar issue.

I agree, it only happens once in a while and only when sitting still....
