Well when you are driving the alternator is at a constant speed then when you slow down the alternator sort of skips a beat causing the lights to dim!

You can't. It's either dipped or side lights I'm afraid. And if I see you driving on side lights you'll get a clip round the ear.

check fuses, check bulbs, from there see if there is a grond for your reverse lights that may need cleaning. If still no lights, make sure there is a good wire back to the transmission for your lights. Still no luck, look into the sensor on tranny for your reverse lights. Good luck.

Check the light relay circuits for the lighting. Either a relay or electronic circuit is causing the problem of the lights staying on

Replace the bulb first, if this does not work try the reverse switch.

Yea its an electric or body comtrole module .about 400.00to repair at dealer. Will cause lights to flicker off & on and sometimes horn will chirp also while driving

Turning the lights on put a load on the alternator causing the idle speed to drop. I would have the battery and charging system tested to make sure everything is okay. The battery may be on its way out.
