Default problemmmmmm

Hey guys,

a couple weeks ago i noticed that my headlights, interior lights and everything fade when im on the gas and are bright when i let off the gas..........any ideas?

And today my car pulled like it never has before and was very suprising. V tech wasnt as loud as usual but it was faster. i could feel the difference easily. and my lights would stay bright and not dim

but then a couple hours later it went back to the same usual slowness

If your phone isn't as loud as usual, just turn the volume up. You probably bumped a button with your ear.

Seems like you might have a loose ground wire.

The voltage regulator inside of the alternator may be bad. Have the alternator tested.
