I just put in an Eclipse CD 3434 and when I turn the headlights on, additional lights come on (behind the preset keys and stuff) - THose lights seem to flicker completely at random. I can't figure it out for the life of me. Do you think I just have a short? It's just the lights that would come on with the "illumination" cable.
What car are we talking about? The Eclipse is nice stuff and usually dont have problems. I would be interested in what happens when you unhook the illumination wire (I think its orange?). Also check the voltage at the wire with a multimeter, better yet have a buddy do it while you drive. See if it flucuates any. It should stay within .1-.2 volts.

Sorry, this is in a '95 318IS - If I disconnect the illumination, then nothing will show up behind those buttons, if that makes sense. But yeah, I'll check with a voltage meter, thanks for the suggestion.
