AnswerUsually a bad connection either in the ground (more likely) or the hot leg. I have seen a lose fuse cause this as well, but it depends on how old your car is and if it uses the newer blade fuses or the older glass cartridge type.

i have the same problem i found out what it is by the brake and gas pedals.. where the code reader goes underneath the a black box. I think it is a power converter. I unpluged it and the dome light went out, but no more flicker.
