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.

your alternator was never the problem. Its your battery and/or charging system. the reason the lights get brighter is because the car isn't getting the propper amount of energy from the battery and is having to directly draw off of the alternator. when the engine is rev'ed the alternator spins faster creating more current to charge the battery, witch is why the lights brighten at higher rpms.
