Q: Lights dim go off

I own a 2007 Hyundai Azera, and my headlights and interior lights dim while I’m driving. Sometimes my whole panel lights up like everything is going to quit working.

Hi! It sounds like the voltage regulator for the alternator on your Hyundai is having trouble supplying the proper voltage for your system to run. I would suggest testing the alternator and any fuses and relays related to the alternator.
