Help- Flickering lights

...Yes I searched.

My head lights and dash lights are flickering. They do it more at idle but also at higher RPM.

I have check all my grounds. I have installed separate relays for high and low beams. I also have a 320 alternator and a fresh optima battery.

It was a used alternator, can the flicker come from the alternator itself?

Any ideas would be helpful

Thanks

Voltage Regulator? Have you used a voltmeter to check how much the car is doing at idle?

Like Konrad said. Check the volt. reg in your 320 alt. It's SUPER easy to get to you should be able to do it w/out taking anything off the car. I'm almost positive that it's 2 phillips head screws.

If it's bad, it will be pretty obvious. If they are bad call blunt. the part is cheap so buy two (one for a spare)...Trust me on this...

ALSO before you start the car up, throw the battery on a charger and get it all juiced up.

Pull the battery terminals and clean them well.

That can do it.
