Wrangler stutters and sputters when headlights go on

Hello- hoping you folks can point me in the right direction?

My brother in law has a '90 Wrangler. We were driving to the store today, and when he turned the lights on, the vehicle started sputtering and stuttering. I looked at the ammeter, and it was going nuts. As soon as we turned the lights off, no problems.

Going to check everything with a voltmeter later today when I get off work, but in the meantime- any known issues of this nature been mentioned or experienced by anyone previously?

Thanks in advance,

The right direction would be to post this in the YJ tech section and you will probably get some help there.
