Would this indicate that the alternator is on it's way out?

While driving the headlights and dashboard lights seems to be pulsating, especially when you come to a stop, then they're really bad.

Do you
have the same problem?

At least yours just pulsate. I replaced an alternator and the headlights blew out. I think it had a bad regulator built in (inside the alternator). Prior to that it was the heater fan and headlights that were pulsating. I replaced the battery and alternator again, because the battery also fried from the surges.
