Hi. WHat could be wrong with my citroen bx 16valve. headlights are flivckering when running motor on high rpm.
Possible problems: slipping belt at higher RPM's with high electrical load, voltage regulator, if regulator is built into alternator take car to a shop and have it tested, bad engine grounds, bad alternator ground, battery check for bad cells, dirty battery cables. So there are a few things to check I'm thinking a voltage regulator is the culprit.
this is typical electric problem on citroen cars you should check the electric wires and connections specially in motor bay iclouding the woltage regulator and the alternator diodes but ı highly recomend you to give a carefull ceckup to the electric systemit could be the head light corrosion but these cars are wellknown with the poor electric workmanship
some times it is only bad grounding
