1998 Caravan dash, door locks flicker

1998 Dodge Caravan
When driving it is becoming more frequent that the dash board flickers off and on, the door locks go down and up and the parking lights flicker on/off.
This all happens at the same time but the car drives along perfectly fine and there is no engine trouble when this happens.
My neighbor thought it was in the alarm system that was installed years ago when we bought the van. We took the car to the alarm installer who has many years of experience and he checked it and says the alarm system is fine and that the problem is with the van electrical system.
Has anyone had this type of problem before?

Already Replaced Battery

Brand new battery installed 2 weeks ago. But I do appreciate your input.

Personally I would check all the ground straps going to the frame, firewall etc, and clean or replace as necessary.
