    Welcome to the site, do they flicker just when driving or every other time as well?

    They only check the alternator for constant power under a certain load. The regulators/etc is most likely bad. Its spiking the voltages at random, mine does it occassionaly

    Do the lights change when you rev? If so it probably is the alternator.

    also try taping them to see if there is a short somewhere up front, but I agree on the alt.
