My Dodge Dakota (2002) does this. I tracked it to the module on the lower drivers side panel, near the door. Every time something comes on (like the door ajar) my headlamps would flash. They also flash whenever I get the low fuel warning. It does sound like a ground problem but it is in this module. Motorola Part Number 2JTH2677AD or Chrysler Number P56049072AG.

bad ground cable on battery, maybe.

I had to replace the main computer 4 months ago. This issue is resolved.
