Default Traction control = headlight flickering

We just has our first snow fall Christmas Eve so after I did my family dinner me and a buddy went out cruising around doing donuts and drifting and all that fun stuff.. But I noticed when the traction control button is off it seems to still be on a little bit if that makes sense... But when it feels like it kicks in my head lights flicker and dim out for a few seconds then back to normal anyone have the same issue? Oh and btw it's not my hid I'm talkin bout.. My stock head lights I had to put back in cuz a capacitor on the harness carodide off and still lookin for one

What you're experiencing is normal operation of the system.

Traction control is never 100% off, even when you press the button on the dash. I'd assume the flickering is due to the abs pump(and maybe other traction controls) kicking in, causing a heavy load on the alternator.
