Default 2008 or 2009 Honda Accords

Just wondering if those who own this car have problems with the
protruding headlights or tail lights? I don't mean if you like or
dislike them but rather from a mechanical, functional or practical
standpoint.

They fall readily to hand, you might say.

Well they do dim a bit more than in any other Accord. My sister owns
an 08 and it really bothers me, especially when you have the A/C on
and it keeps flickering every 20 seconds.

Here is someone's youtube on the problem.

I have the same problem indicated in the youtube video
on my 2004 accord 2door 4-cyl. In his video we can hear
the A/C compressor and fan clicking on/off causing the
rpms change on the engine and the voltage fluctuations.

When I run my car with the voltmeter in the cigarette
socket I see momentary voltage drops below 12V causing
obvious intensity changes in the headlights. This happens
also during driving.

The explanation given by the honda shop was that the
car uses "ecological" alternator which does not charge
the battery all the time like with older cars, keeping the
voltage at 13.5-14V - in honda, the alternator turns off
when the battery is charged, so the fluctuations in load
cause fluctuations in voltage battery can provide to the load.

You can "fix" the problem installing HID headlights with
their own power supplies - that should eliminate flicker
on headlights, but the voltage in the rest of the circuit
would still fluctuate - I would not mind this - the headlights
flicker pisses me off, I do not care about the rest :-)

BTW
- the original poster probably asked about the mechanical
aspect of the protruding lights, not the flickering :-)
