Roger, yes, there should be a small wire comming off your negative battery cable end that would connect to your fender with a screw.  When I first got my Monte that wire was missing and if driving at night when I would have my headlights on and turned on a turn signal all of the lights would dim with the turn signals flashing.  Once I hooked that wire to the fender it corrected that issue.  

I do think there are other things that can cause lights to fluctuate but that would be the cheapest repair.
