I'm going to assume you have checked the alternator output with a volt meter and the system is functioning normally.
My first guess would be a bad connection, such as a loose ground somewhere.

Battery light on its not battery or alternator

No guessing here

That wouldn't even be possible

You need the car,trouble charts & actually
work on diagnosing- possibly more than one

You have an abs light on, so there is a place to
start & resolve before moving on to non check

When car is at idle theres no problem, but when rpm go up all interior and headlights flicker.

Do the lights flicker brighter than they are at idle or dimmer? If they flicker brighter, voltage regulator in alternator is suspect. If they flicker dimmer, you likely have a loose power cable either on the battery or on the fuse and relay center or on the alternator.

Just replaced the battery. After one week, the battery is dead. The alternator was replaced last year. After recharging the battery, all the lights, controls and gauges are flickering on and off. Not...

Alternators can and do fail, even after a year-you should have at least 14 volts when the car is running, at the battery. Because you say you are getting a flickering, I would check connections at the battery (they need to be really clean, the battery posts AND the insides of the clamps). Also, check the connection at the starter and the ground to the engine from the battery-after you know you are getting that 14 volts at the battery while the car is at idle.

Idle and light flickering

If your lights are flickering at idle only then I would assume the problem to be an undercharged battery most likely caused by an alternator not putting out enough amps. Better have the alternator/battery checked before it gives out completely. Please rate this answer, thanks.

My tib's lights flash interior and head lights i had my alternator replaced but since the my car idles too my battery was boiling and smoking its almost like it is overcharging my cars electrical

I'd be taking my car back to whoever installed that alternator. Sounds like a bad voltage regulator, and you should be hoping the battery was the only casualty of that.

That would also make your lights flicker as those power surges shot through the battery and rest of the car. Check all the wiring to the starter and alternator from the battery, and also the battery ground. Rotted wires will be apparent now after that kind of problem, and if so then NOW is the time to replace them.

98 Maxima - Battery and Brake Lights flickering

First off - 125K mi is nothing on that car (as long as you maintain it). The alternator is actually also the voltage regulator and this aspect of the alternator frequently fails before the actual alternator itself does and causes irregular voltage - so it makes sense you drove without the battery connected but you probably were having irregular power instead of a nice steady 14V (the other thing to know is that even if they do show 14V all the time the amperage may differ, both problems = change the alternator).

All my lights are flickering on my car....

Check Alternator Diode if one is bad it can make your lights flicker, but it will show the alternator as being good.
