Default 2006 Forenza flickering lights/only when running

My dads forenza has a problem. ALL THE LIGHTS flicker when it is running. it doesn't do it when it is off. had the alt tested at parts store said it was good. Has anyone had this issue, I have seen other threads but they were not the same issue.
Is there a ground wire I am missing? checked them to make sure they were tight and not corroded. I am at a loss. I told him not to buy this car and now I am the one fixing it.

Thanks for any help.
Bryan

That would indeed be an alternator issue, either a rectifier diode is bad or the load is no good (battery).

The alt case is the ground via the engine>frame>body... Check the ground for voltage drop.. >.3vdc with loaded circuit is poor...

Default wiring harness recalls

This year Suzuki has multiple recalls for the wiring harness, specifically for exterior lighting. If you haven't received a notice you can probably look it up online. Get it fixed for free!
