You need an alternator! The problem is in the alternator and more specifically, the regulator. It seems to be just hanging on and it is possible the mechanics didn't bother to test for proper charging amperage and voltage. The reason it would dim is because it was relying heavily on the battery instead of the charging system provide the adequate power.
