It sounds like a loose connection. If it is all lights then look in main panel. If just some lights look at the switch first for loose connections. There is a good chance that the neutral from the service entrance cable to the panel is loose. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN WORKING IN THE PANEL. Even when the main breaker is off, there is still some power in the panel. If in doubt, hire a licensed electrician.

I should mention that the alternator has gone bad and been replaced, so has the battery. The various dash lights will often come on and go off for no apparent reason also.
