Brake and Battery lights flicker on/off

I have a '98 Prelude with intermittent problem. Both brake and battery lights occasionally and simultaneously flicker on, and then go off right away. Battery tests 12.5V when car is off, and 14.5 when running with lights/AC/radio on. Checked terminal connections ok. Car runs good, cranks right up. No codes. Any ideas? Thanks.

That's what I initially thought but I replaced the alternator less than a year ago, and I'm getting good voltage when the car is running. Anything else it could be?

Re: Brake and Battery lights flicker on/off

ive seen this once before does if your idle drops low enough when braking or coming to a stop i could maybe see this problem

i would adjust your idle screw up on your throttle body to see if this fixes your problem
thanks.
