    Just wondering if anyone else had this happen to them or if they know why it
    might be happening.

    Car is a 1994 Honda Civic SI and the battery light will flicker on (but
    never actually stay on).
    I've noticed that it usually happens when I'm on the highway and traveling
    at a speed >125km/hr. RPMs are at around 3300.

    Anyone else ever hear of this?

    Thanks Tony,

    I will do that. The battery is fairly new ( 1 yr old ) so I didn't think it
    would be that. I assumed a loose connection or something like that but I
    just found it odd that it happens whenever I'm RPMing at >3300 or traveling
    BTW, are you speaking from experience?

    Sounds like your alt. is starting to fail.

    It could be just worn out alternator brushes too being 10 year old

    Just thought I'd post and let you all know that my flickering light was due
    to my alternator starting to fail because of worn brushes.
    Hope this helps someone out in the future.
    Thanks to all who responded.
