Okay, it sounds like possibly a couple things. First, the noise you hear makes me believe the alt belt is loose. Check the belts to make sure they are tight. NOTE: If the belt is loose and the alt can't keep up with the supply, the lights will dim. Also, if that checks out to be okay, you may need to check the wiring in the steering column for a short.
