Last night on the way home I noticed that my lights, headlights and interior, flicker when I applied the brakes. The ammeter didn't move and stayed right on the '0'.
Give me an idea of what could cause this.

i can't tell you the exact answer, but from what it sounds like, when you apply the brake, the lights lighting up in the rear are drawing power from other power sources. My best guess would be to check how much voltage your alternator is putting out and open your trunk and look at the wiring at your brake light fixtures for possible shorting or grounging problems. remember that all connections should be clean and tight in order to get proper voltage.
