   Hi all, I have a qashqai+2 on a 2014 reg which is one of the last of the J10 engines in 1.5dci I believe, anyway I can be driving along with the heating on and lights on like you do on cold dark morning and my head lights have been dimming when I take my foot of the throttle but when I re apply they Brighten back up. The interior lights also have a pulsating look about them when I pull up and open the door whilst the engines runnin.
Nissan have had the car in ans said everything is working as should and happy to let the car go but clearly there is a problem, the battery with the engine off is 12.9v and running is 13.6/13.9v
Any advice would be brilliant even Nissan head office have been hopeless!

13.9 volts suggest the alternator is working ok.  Strange one Confused

Exactly my point! Do you think I'm being picky?

The alternator charges the battery and provides power to all the gizmos in a car via an stabiliser/regulator. When the head lights display this behaviour, this stabiliser/regulator could be kaput....
