Did you look at the picture of the Xenon bulb? It seems like it exploded in the housing. I can imagine the sparks arcing inside the housing.

The battery is not even six months old, so I'm going to go with Alternator. My mechanic had told me it's about time to replace since it's ONLY 11 years old. :D

Flashing lights for no reason??
