Electrical button related flicker

My SVT's odometer area on the gauge cluster and headlights flicker if i click any of the electrical buttons inside the car. (horn, window buttons, etc)

I just recently realized it while i was parking and had the headlights on and clicked the window up buttons to make sure the windows were up before i got out of the car. That was when i saw the connection that every click of a button- resulted in a flicker of the headlights and gauge cluster area.

Little background- About 3 months ago, i bought a big 3 upgrade kit from Ray and installed the 2 grounds only. Still havent gotten around to doing the upgraded postive cable. Also, the car is still stock...nothing extra added to the electrical system that would pull more energy from the car/alternator/battery.

Before i bought the car, about a year and a half ago- the alternator was replaced.

My thoughts: BAD/defective alternator, bad ground connection, not installing the upgraded positive cable yet, or jacked up wiring.

What do you guys think?




Thanks guys as always!
