    I have a 2007 Legend fully loaded. Notice at night with headlights on they constantly flicker.
    Seems to be a regular problem with Honda cars, I am ex motor trade with tools so can easily check battery output and alternator. Any suggestions? Thanks. Freddie.

    They haven't been changed for LED without the resistors have they?

    You could try a new lamp in one & see what happens.

    Failing that, it could be failing ballasts.

    My flickering was cured by new bulbs

    Many thanks to all the members who kindly offered support and suggestions.
    As it was a nice day put my tester on the battery. without ignition was showing 12.45.
    Under a full load A/C included shows 14.75. So nothing seems wrong with alternator.
    It is the offside outer headlight on main beam or dipped which flickers.
    Gave the outer casing and metalwork a few slaps. Seems to have cured it. Would think its a bad connection. Next time it goes to Honda Brayley in Enfield will ask to have it fixed. Wish I knew a reliable mechanic for Honda around EN4.
    Once again thanks to all the Karma members whom replied. Freddie {lotofrot}
