Punto mk2 headlights

My Punto mk2 1.2 sx has problem with headlights.
When I start the engine and switch on headlights, they are "blinking", like the voltage is not 14V all the time.
It's like the voltage is 12V, 14V, 12V, 14V as a result headlights and interior lights are blinking. When increasing rpm, headlights starts to blink faster.

Does anybody knows what the f... is causing this.
All fuses are OK.

Another thing, every time I press the brake pedale, airbag light turns on for a moment.

Please help

ouch i had the airbag problem, took it to fiat and they plugged a computer in to it, and it stopped... but then it returned, then one day i stopped suddenly and it just stayed on constantly,

one day it just... went off... fiat said it was the passenger airbag so i wasn't that bothered

as for the headlights :S

no idea matey, have you modded the car at all?
