It is a bad ground on the starter. There is a single 5mm allen head bolt at the rear of the starter that provides a good ground during operations other than starting. The load shed relay gets its ground through the starter and this bolt. When it gets loose you typically get the flickering dash and lights from the relay chattering at about 3,000 rpm. You have to pull the battery to get to it.
