Evening, small niggle I'm hoping someone can help me out with.
I've noticed that the lcd screen showing the mileage total dims slightly when turning the steering wheel on my corsa c. Also headlights dim slightly when reversing at low revs. Lights dont dim or flicker when I turn hazard lights on and I've also had the battery tested and it's fine.
A mate of mine reckons its an earthing problem? Could anybody shed some light on the matter before I take it to a vehicle electrics specialist?

Thanks in advance.

Dimming is from power being drawn to power sterring so the lights will dim abit and at low revs I'd guess that this is because you are almost stalling the car which will cauae lights to dim also

All depends on the quality of the LEDs to be honest. If it were me, I would go with Surface Mount LEDs (SMD)

Do you have any idea how to go about fitting them or point me in a direction to a tutorial?

Same thing on my missus mini, brand new battery, and alternator tested. All fine. I just tend to press the throttle ever do slightly when reversing etc.

If it really did bother you I'm sure some 4/0awg cable on the 'big 3' wouldn't hurt, but would probably be unnecessary :)
