Question Hmm Weird??

Ok well it was raining yesterday nothing to serious just drizzle while I was driving with my girlfriend back home the lights flickered in the radio and odometer off and then on just one time the whole trip I had the running lights on and I took the HVAC apart to see how many LEDs I'll need to change out for the blue one so I took it apart and put it back together and pluged it all in but for some reason only 2 LEDs are out in the HVAC and its all plugged in right... it works n all its just the two LEDs could it of been that? For the reason. Of the flicker? Or do I need to get my battery check? Any ideas? The car starts normal and all its just that, that kinda freaked me out Lol and I thought it was my eyes til my girlfriend said she saw it also...help..thanks..

So did you swap to LED's or were you just looking at what was there?

So are the HVAC lights still out or was it just momentarily? You may want to go back in and make sure the solder connections are intact.

If the bulbs are original and you took the HVAC unit out of the car and manhandled it a little bit, chances are bulb filaments broke. I see that all the time with clusters. After being on for so long filaments get brittle and easily break or burn out if you knock them around.
