    Default Dash lights flashing a little

    I noticed the flashing a few days ago, but today I managed to record it.

    The situation is like this: at idle speed, the dash lights behave normally. When I rev the engine at 1500 rpm (or anywhere above 1000-1100 rpm), the lights start flashing.

    I'm pretty sure this didn't happen before I had my alternator fixed 2 weeks ago. You might also see the fluctuations of the voltage towards the end of the movie.

    Any ideas what can cause this?

    Someone here in Romania suggested the regulator. I incline to say he's right.

    Well, I change the regulator today and the car feels like someone Else's car. Everything it's changed: how the gearbox works, how the steering works, how the car pulls. Incredible.
