Default Headlights flickering

Hi I have a 05 cruiser with 135xxx miles. Have not had alot of problems with it but recently I have noticed my head lights kinda flicker when I put my foot on the brake. I dont think it would be an alternator problem cause the lights inside the car dont flicker at the same time. I have no check engine light on either. Any help would be great.

check the rear tail lights for corrosion. it could be feeding back through the system.

Have you checked your battery? Battery cables clean when you the battery cables off the battery? How often do you replace the battery on your PT Cruiser?
