Question 2011 Ram Charging System Problem???

Hey Everyone,
So my 2011 Ram has about 890-kilometer/546-Miles on it and my daily running lights and headlights both dim and flicker after applying the brakes, opening the windows or pressing the defogger. Is this normal?. They don't dim right away, say you hit the break and hold it down all is fine but after releasing it the lights start to flicker for about three seconds. I know I have warranty and that is what its for, but my dealer is about an hour away and before I drive there I just want to make sure its not normal. Also if anyone know what I can ckeck myself please let me know. Thanks Guys

Brandon

You may want to check the connections on the back of your alternator. I read another post where the bolt was not tightened properly from the factory and it was on an 11.

I have a 2010 Dodge ram 5.7 hemi doing the same thing. Lights get dim and blower motor speed goes up and down and watch the voltage gauge and itr drops to 12 then back to 14 volts and a few times it has hit 17 volts. This makes the third time it has been back. They have put an alternator and ecm and battery and still does it. now they are saying they cant get it to do it and i can get it to do it before i leave the parking lot of the dealer ship. It started at 33000 miles and still have it this going on at 36500. They have had my truck for a total of 3 month now off and on.
