My first move would be to remove, clean and tighten the battery +/- 
clamps. If it doesn't help, test the battery or swap in a different 
battery temporarily to prove/disprove that the battery is the culprit. 
The lamps don't pull nearly as many amps as the starter, so are not a 
reliable indicator of battery health. had this to say:
