signs the alternator is going??

I've had a couple of electrical gremlins lately. Now, I'm noticing that at idle, the gauge and interior lights fluctuate. Are these signs of a bad alternator??

Could be, is it more pronounced when the headlights are on or the blinker is going? These cars are notorious for a faulty ignition switch that can cause all kinds of electrical gremlins. Have you eliminated that possibility?
