Overhead light strobe

Recommended Posts

Last night my Wife and I noticed the overhead lamp at the rear view mirror would give off a stobe of light every once in a while, say ten or fifteen seconds apart . There was no timing about it at all. I figure I will take it apart and clean it up but wanted to get any input first. Thanks Phil

I took a quick look at the light itself in the daylight and realized how complicated it was. I took off the black covers and blew air in through it with a type of keyboard cleaner, no differance. I have a Durametric tool, when things slow down I will hook up and see about the regulator. Thanks

One thing I failed to mention was when I put my hand in the area of the light it does'nt come on. Or if it does its more of a flicker on off type of light. Could it be the sensor that could be causing this? Thanks

Good day, I took the assembly off yesterday and cleaned up using CRC electronic spray cleaner , reassembled and map light works fine. I set the switch to low and noticed it does not turn off. Is this normal? Thanks Phil
