    My 2002 Honda CRV with 87,000 miles just recently had the
    airconditioning compressor replaced along with the filter and
    expansion valve by my local mechanic. Since then I noticed that the
    green square around the shifter indicator and the cruise control light
    slightly flicker when the car seems to be under load. This happens
    with the AC on or off. When I slow down to an idle, the light seems to
    stop flickering. The flickering is a slight change in brightness in a
    constant cyclical nature seeming as if the voltage regulator is unsure
    whether to charge or not. No other lights seem to show this. I looked
    at the dome light and it seems stable. The radio dial seems stable.
    The odometer seems stable. I do not get any battery indicator on the
    dash or any check engine light illumination.

    I am somewhat baffled as to where to look to begin to track this down.
    I don't want to be a parts changer but rather would like some
    suggestions as to where to look. I have the full tech manual for this
    car but did not find anything in the trouble shooting that references
    this kind of problem.

    Any advice will be very appreciated.

    Usually you need to have the WHOLE system replaced, since the
    contaminants (chunks) are throughout the system. HONDA often replaces it
    _all_ for free.

    SEARCH first, ask questions later: http://www.hondasuv.com

    Don't know about the flickering... Are you still using the factory stereo?
