If the revs drop below a certain level then the lights will dim slightly so that may not be directly linked to the main fault.

On my daughters car the car would start and run for around two mins. it would then have a hissy fit and not respond to any throttle input for around 30 seconds with the engine struggling to idle and the revs bouncing around all over the place. Once it had finished doing its thing it would run perfectly until it was switched off and back on again , then it would do exactly as described previously.
