Turn the knob that controls the dash light brightness and watch the lights. If they flicker instead of slowly changing brightness you may have a faulty switch. I had the turn signal/headlight switch replaced and it resolved this for me My dash quit working for months,would keep blowing fuse. One day I Noticed reverse lights not working. Found wire coming from reverse switch on transmission rubbed through/shorting out. Nissan had bare wire running thru fold over tabs with nothing around it! Russell in Mississippi
brake light switch would be most common cause
Its either a faulty cable or a faulty electrical connection.
brake switch ???
When i was trying to disable my DRL's (Daytime Running Lights) i pulled the fuse for them and my headlights and instrument lights were flashing intermittently. Check the fuse panel in the glove box and look for the DRL fuse. Check if its blown. Hope this helps!!!

You probably have a bad ground. Check the grounds on the brake lights.
What would cause your fuse to blow when you turn on your lights on your 1993 mazda 323 the fuse to the tail lights on dash lights blow?
Answer 1 - Instrument Lights Operate IntermittentlyWithout doing a "hands on troubleshooting" of your vehicle, no one here can be certain of the specific location and cause of your problem. However, based on your question, I suspect that the cause is a loose connection in the circuit providing power to the instrument lights, or on the instrument panel circuit board itself.It is possible also, that the instrument panel dimmer switch is wearing out.Answer 2 -The dash dimmer switch or the headlight switch is the most likely problem.
blower motor has a short. replace blower motor
Check the switch on the brake pedal
Check for a loose power steering belt.
Yes. You would need to wire them up to your running lights.
Because the switch is in the on position
Blown fuse? Damaged buss board?
what would cause a nissan maxima to run slow or almost stop when it rains or snows and the distiributor is dry?
Electronics FailureMost likely you have a short somewhere in the dashboard electronics and the bad part is you will probably never find it.
It's probably your Alternator that is going bad. That is if the battery and brake lights came on at the same time.
check your fusible link,its connected to your positive battery cable,it could be burnt or swollen.
It is possible that the speedometer on a 1997 Plymouth will only work intermittently because the gear is worn out. Sometimes dirt can get up into the area where the speedometer cable is housed and cause excessive wear to the gear.
My edcated Guess would be to open the hood, unscrew them and replace them.
