Generally this is due to corroded/ old/ poor ground connections. Your engine, frame, battery, and electrical grounds must have good clean connections especially on a fiberglass car. I suggest you purchase some grounding straps and attach them to clean points between these areas( You can't have too many). Sand off and rust or old paint; this should solve the problem. A defective alternator can do the same.

By pulsate do you mean flicker. A momentary dimming of your lights can be caused by motor loads on your lighting circuits. If your lights dim, this can be caused by a refrigerator, sump pump, garage door opener or other motors sharing the circuit with your lighting.
