Those three lights are all tied in with the alternator. Sounds like you maybe have a high resistance on the alternator wiring or the engine ground.

When you have a significantly higher voltage coming out the alternator than you have at the battery it sometimes causes the battery light to glow a little, which in turn causes the other two lights to glow because they are all linked inside the instrument cluster.

Sorry havent been on for a year but mine did the same and it is the Alternator,my lights came on for 5seconds to 15 seconds and then just go off and everything normal but they would still flicker which is very annoying because tests at the shop didn't find anything wrong,it just died one day and then had a new alternater put on and no problems since(knock on wood)If yours is solved I hope this helps someone else!
