My alternator was replaced and now all my lights in my car flicker and they flicker really bad when i have my defroster or ac running. My dash lights and dome light and headlights all flicker at the same time

I suspect bad grounds or power or just flat out a poorly re manufactured alternator.. An ocillascope would quickly identify if the alternator diode pattern is OK. With a volt meter does the alternator charge the battery at approx. 14.6 volts
