Anyone have this problem: While driving at night with the high beams off I can see an intermittent flash on the instrument cluster (high beam indicator) that's about 1/3 as bright as if it was on? I tried adjusting the dimmer switch to see if it would affect it but it doesn't? This is a new truck to me so far (only 500 miles to date) and I didn't find any info. on the search tab. It's distracting to catch a glimpse of it flashing.

high beam light sucks

I took 05 3500 dually in for the same reason last week and my service writer called me (left me a message the coward) and said upon questioning Dodge that Dodge emailed him a response of:

Dodge is aware of the problem and that they had tested several lots of parts and found it to be normal that the indicator would flash in a certain % of units.

They went on to say this was normal and no fix was authorized.

To say I'm not happy is a understatment. I am going to try and get a copy of the email.

The flashing light is distracting at night and I feel I shouldn't have to use 5 cents of black tape on a $40k dollar truck!:CRY:
