You might see some dimming when the rad fan, AC condenser Fan, blower, or other high loads are turned on, however flickering isn't normal.
I would start by checking the battery terminals, battery cables first.

Yes but those things all use different grounding points. I would think more along the lines of it being a power problem, bad alternator or voltage regulator or even issues with the connectors on the underside of the under hood fuse box. If you have a voltmeter it would be interesting to see if the voltage fluctuates at the battery when it happens.
