I have an AU Fairmont with this problem that's not causing any hassles, just annoying me. A lot of the time when I'm braking to a stop, and get down to about 15k's, the car shudders, and at night the lights dim slightly. It only lasts about half a second, but always does it at this speed. Any ideas on what this is?

Idle Control Solenoid ... maybe.
May need a clean ... throttle body may need a clean out as well.
