Ticking and flashing dash

Hi all.

After noticing that my battery was playing up which ended up being the positive terminal not being tightened up by Honda dealer when I had my roof done, I charged the battery with a charger (disconnected from the car) and now when I start the car I get some clicking noise and the dash lights flicker. The car is turning over and starting OK with no errors etc.

It is not the starter motor clicking as it turns over OK.

Any ideas before I take it in to Honda.

I'd be tempted to say the battery is gone due to not being charged right.

Get a load test done at an autospark. Voltmeter WO t suffice

Thanks Stoney.

My mate gave me one like this a while back but never used it, I will have to try it out.
