what the heck is the magic eye? Are you talking about the thing on the front of your dashboard that senses when it is too dark and turns your headlights on?

So when you drive at night with the headlights switched to AUTO the lights stay off? and when you turn them to the ON position, the lights come on? And if you put it back into the AUTO position, the lights then begin to flicker? Is this a constant flicker? or will it just happen like once or twice and then the lights stay off?

That is very strange. But the thing I find the weirdest is that you say after you switch the knob to the ON position and all the lights come on, if you put it back to the AUTO position, the lights flicker. That's very strange. I don't know if that makes it a wiring issue, but obviously they ruled out it not being that magic eye thing.

What did the dealership say when they looked at it? Did they just guess that that was the issue?

they check it all out with the computer and told me that all is working well they figured it was the magic eye because it will onlydo this at night but i never noticed it during the day but will have to keep an eye on it during the day
