Mine flickered on-off until the alternator died and I had to replace it. Worked fine for a year now. Most parts places will test an alternator for you when you bring it in.

2001 Silverado flickering lights and will not start


What does the battery pull down to when you try to start the truck? My son just went through this and as I explained to him. You may have 12V at the battery but it doesn't mean the CCA's are there. If you put your meter on the battery and have someone try to start the truck and the volt meter drops below 10V. You need a battery or a really good charge.

My 2002 Honda Civic starts - but slowly and the lights flicker


Well it absolutely sounds like an alternator issue. But i noticed you said "in the rain" correct? See this is where it gets tricky for most folks. But ill tell ya how to resolve this, if you arent having problems now things are gonna be just fine. I mean if you got up the next morning and th ecar did normal, then evidentally an electrical component had some moisture in it but has dried out now,so if it was the alternator the problem would only worsen, and within a few days your battery would fail. So I think you will be just fine
