What size/tupe of engine do you have ?????

I have never seen it on my Leon (1.8t), but it's is usually caused by the Power Steering Pump kicking in while the engine is at idle, causing a slight dip in revs - and therefore the altenator voltage drops a bit & lights dim.

It's normal - the Ibiza has electro-hydraulic power steering - as you can imagine it's a big old motor needed to operate that!

Yup, always used to happen on my Ibiza when I turned the wheel while on the driveway, didn't seem to happen (or at least it wasn't noticeable) when moving so I just happily ignored it ;)
