[200q20v] wierd behavior- "pulsing interior lights"?

Just got back from a week in Chermany with my wife and 1 year old son...
Tidbit of information is that a dorF Focus stationwagon, mit AC and 
automatic (not my choice), can hit 180 kph going downhill, with the AC off 
and a tailwind....of course I had to turn the AC when passing, too.  ;^(

I just reinstalled the ECU into the TQW, pulled the the fuses to clear any 
codes, and started the engine...and the interior lights pulsed, along with 
the gauges (including the voltmeter).  I checked the voltage on channel 11 
of the CC head to verify this phenomena...

I started/stopped the engine repeatedly, but the behavior continued, even 
if RPMs were over 4k...

Ideas? I had the alternator rebuilt 1 year ago...  I'm also getting a 1111 
fault code.  I previously had this and tried cleaning the ground wires.

Chris Miller borrowed the ECU last week and had no codes indicated, so I 
doubt the fault is there.

Of course there was no "pulsing" this morning, but it does have me concerned.
