What would cause all of my cars electronics to fluctuate?

(1999 Honda Accord)
So I've been having a problem recently with my car, When I put the car into drive the indicator light on the dashboard does not light up. Normally this would not be an issue, but alongside this all the lights on my dash will randomly flicker at once, the windshield wipers will change speeds, the AC will get stronger and the headlights will flash from low to high beams, all at the same time.

I've attempted to do some looking around with a friend of mine who deals with cars, and he assumes that it is probably something wrong with the sensor in the gear shift, which ends up causing a short, and thus all the fluctuations. I'm hoping that it will just be something small that I can fix myself, otherwise ill have to send it to a shop, which I currently cannot afford.

Has anyone ever had this problem and/or know how exactly I could fix it?

Have the charging system checked....could be a failing alternator not producing the proper voltage.
