Speedo ilumination

Just noticed cruising round at night that when my indicators are used, the illumination in my speedo cluster blinks ever so slightly to the tune of the indicators?

Not troublesome, but instill a lot of curiosity in me

It could be your alternator is on its way out. This usually happens to interior lighting/headlights on chavmobiles when they have a loud sound system and the charging system cant handle the power being drawn by the 90" sub in the boot.

There might be other causes though, but thats something to check.

It's fairly normal - I've had it happen on several cars, probably down to a poor earth connection. I don't think there's any cause for concern.
