Electrical oddity

I noticed when I was driving last night that my headlights acted a bit weird. Sometimes they would flicker and my right turn signal would come on for one second then everything would return to normal. The headlights do this whether I am in high beams or low beams.

Since the wiring part of the headlight system, fuselinks, and alternator were redone professionally I am not thinking I have wiring problems this time. I think my headlight dimmer/hazard light/turn signal switch might be going bad (even though I got it brand new in 2001). Any other ideas or suggestions? Thank you.

Re: Electrical oddity

We never did check your grounds, did we...? Sounds like a place to start :)

'88 EVTM shows both going thru a splice at "RH front of engine compartment" and connecting to ground on the radiator support near the right headlight.
