you may want to check your charging system. and your idle air control if your idle dips too much when your trans goes into gear. Just it just dim once as your trans goes into gear or is it dimming and getting bright many times?

if it continues you should look at your battery voltage when it is happening. the turn signal is different. the switch may be getting a build up from arcing on the contacts. wait and see if it gets worse.
