My lights(all) go off and on and the dinger dings. They do this for a while stop and then stop again as if it is a warning. just put new headlight in and had to take battery out. Also had it detailed so thought a button got pushed but that is not it.

Asked by Aug 05, 2012 at 08:17 PM about the 2003 Kia Spectra Base

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Changed headlight, took battery out and put back and had it cleaned.  Lights flash off and on (head, tail,
clock and dash) and the dingy dings.  Tried all buttons.  Could this have something to do with the
headlight?

Perhaps something got wet when it was detailed? Give it a few days to dry out. If it stops then you know that's what happened. HTH. -Jim
