Lights cycling bright, dim, bright, dim .. why?

'87 5000CD TQ 274,000km.

My lights; headlights, dash lights and presumable everything electrical,
have just started cycling bright to dim, and back to bright then dim,
etc. I have never noticed this before, but have had trouble starting
when the battery is out of charge. I assumed the battery was being drawn
down by the cooling fan carrying on after the motor stops.

The cycling does not appear to be dependent on motor rpm.

Any ideas?
