Flickering headlights and dashlights

Hi everyone,

I am a new Jeep owner here, 2005 Grand Cherokee Limited 4.7L. The other day while driving to work in the morning, my headlights started to flicker along with all my dash and interior lights. All the idiot lights on the dash would flicker as well and would do this for a few mins and then go away. This has only happened early in the morning or at night when running with the headlights on but doesnt happen every day. This does not seem to effect the engine running at all.

After doing some quick research, it appears some people have had issues with the headlight switch on the steering column. They look to be only about $50 for a new switch so I'm hoping that is what it is. Am I on the right track? Any input helps.

Thanks

I checked the battery and there is no corrosion and the battery was purchased in 10/14.
