I have a Gen5 that slightly has a slight illumination blink (headlights) in a split second when I hit the brakes...what could be the electrical problem? The car is regularly serviced. It also does it when I open the power locks. It seems the elctricity strains in split second when I use either or both the brakes and/or power locks. Can any techy tell me whats the problem?

Normal operation of the alternator. When you place a load on the alternator, it slows just a split second dimming the lights. When it gets back up to speed everything gets back to normal. Nothing to worry about. All cars do that.

Its probably just the voltage regulator lagging behind. It takes a split second for the electronics to catch up with the load. In that time the voltage sags, I wouldn't sweat it..
