Exclamation Lights dim

Has anyone experienced or notice when your driving at night and you turn your blinker on with the dome light on it fades with the turn signal. Its like a power surge like you have too much amps pulling on the system. Anyone notice this or have a fix on it. If anything ill take it to the dealership

I can't really comment. I can't think of one time in my life that I've ever needed to be driving with my direction light and dome light on at the the same time. But it does sound like with both on, the draw is causing your dome to fade, if it's real important to you to use them both at the same time, I'd have the dealer check it out.

Haven't noticed the dome light doing it, but all the other interior lights will fade
then go back to full brightness as the vehicle is idling; guessing the alt is cycling when it does that.
