I've posted before how my headlights dim alot when I hit the brakes at night with the ac on. And although everyone tells me this is normal, it seems to be getting worse. Now, the lights dim just from letting off the gas. Please tell me that this could be something wrong with the ac system. Not that I really need a problem right now, I just can't believe that this much dimming is normal.

Battery is brand new and the alternator is fine under load. What I meant by the ac being the culprit is that maybe the compressor clutch is not kicking in when it should and is sucking too much power.

My sable has always exhibited this problem. Headlights and blower motor are 2 of the power hogs on every car. Maybe someone should try higher amp alternator and see if any improvement. As for our problem, I don't see many other solutions.
