147 TS 2001 automatic, dimming headlights
Newbie Juha here from Switzerland.
Bought a 2nd hand 147 automatic, year 2001.
I've got an annoying issue that when either I myself change gears or set the
"city" position so that the automatic takes over and changes gears that
the when the gear change takes place, the light dim considerably. So much
that people driving towards me flash their headlights or after overtaking,
the guy behind flashes his headlights.
Another thing is that if I also leave the car on idle, the light dim.
I've read other articles on this forum and done web search and suggestions are
to replace battery and/or replace alternator.
Does anyone know anything else I could check or should I call the road service dude
(which I think doesn't cost me anything through insurance) and have him check the
Thanks for any tips/ideas!
