Just like the title says. It started doing it about a week ago. Car has about 156K miles. Tested both battery and alternator and they seem to work perfectly fine. (battery is about 1 year old and the alt. was never replaced) . Its very faint, you can't really see during the day but when you turn on the car when its dark outside it will flicker for 1sec right after the engine starts running. It cranks flawlessly without any hesitation. I turned on every accessory/lights in my car + ac and drove around the town to see if the light will pop out again but nothing.

What could be guys?

Could it be just an old tired alternator? maybe some bad connection or belt slipping on pulley when cranking?
