There could be a fault with the regulator within the alternator, if so then it'll either be a repair if you can find somebody able to carry out alternator repairs or a complete new alternator unit.

When I saw the title of this thread I thought someone was suggesting we flash our lights at each other "a la" aircooled vw and other classics  ;D
