I have a 97 eclipse gst it is the turbo model. I recently changed the alternator and after a while my check engine light turned on. I checked with a shop and the checked the problem and said it was my idle air control valve.I am in the process of getting it changed. Now wenever I turn on my car and turn on my lights they start to flicker until my car is on for about 3 minutes. Then when I start to drive as I accelerate they start to flicker then when I keep it at a constant speed they stop flickering untill I take my foot off the accelerator or accelerate again. I just wanted to know if the idle air control could be the cause of the lights flickering or is it something else?
