Electrical issues/battery dying

Hi, this is my first post, but that doesn't really matter I suppose. Anyway, my '92 EX is having electrical problems. When I'm stopped and my indicator is on my RpMs dip with each blink, and my cars battery has a habit of dying after being parked for a few days. Also, when I apply the brakes my lights dim significantly. Just wondering if anyone has any ideas about what these problems could be linked to, and how to go about fixi g them. Thanks!

First inspect/clean battery terminals, then go to an auto parts store and have them test the charging system, they'll be able to tell you if something needs to be replaced. If the battery drain problem persists. Watch this video, then this video, now buy a voltmeter(less than $10 usually) and get at it. In my experience it's usually stereo related. Good Luck, and post about the outcome.
