Haunted Headlights....

For the first time ever, my 159 is acting like an Alfa

The headlights keep randomly flicking on and off when switched off....

If I put the dipped beams on all the time, they just stay on, they don't flick off, but in any other mode, they flick on and straight off now and again randomly...

Any ideas how to start diagnosing this?

The button on the headlight stalk to reset the time stopped working a while back, so I'm wondering if its the stalk malfunctioning?

Yep, will likely be a carbon build up in the switch on the stalk. buy some electrical contact cleaner, spray it in vigorously and work back and forth with equal vigour to move the carbon
