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

Its either a faulty cable or a faulty electrical connection.

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!!!

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.

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.

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.

My edcated Guess would be to open the hood, unscrew them and replace them.

Those tail lights could be the brake lights you are seeing and that would be a faulty brake light switch or the brake light switch is out of adjustment.

On a 1999 GEO Tracker, a bad fuse can cause the headlights and dash lights to blink. A bad voltage regulator or alternator can also cause lights to blink and flicker.

If the interior and parking lights are not working on a 1999 Nissan Pathfinder, the first fuses to check would be the interior light fuse. Also check to make sure the light switch is in the right position to allow the interior lights to come on.

There are several things that can cause your 1993 Nissan 300 to idle rough. The most common cause is dirty spark plugs. Bad spark plug wires can also cause the problem.
