Flickering Dash

I have noticed that the dash lights (EB Fairmont Dash - LCD one like the Fairlanes - car outline and speedo lights) flicker a little bit at idle, and when a blinker is on. (5 Litre)

Could this be the alternator on the way out?

Are there any other things that might explain this?

Never had any problems starting or cranking her over.

Any help appreciated,

Pete

Could be a bad earth somewhere. Also, it may be time to clean the terminals on your battery. Check the latter first.
