The initial draw of electricity causes a fluctuation in voltage until all the internal capacitors are charged. After that the unit won't draw as much voltage and current.

Utime is the amount of time that it takes a computer to start up after normal shut down. When the computer is turned on is the start of utime. The end of utime is the moment that the computer is ready to be used.

The rheostat in the light stalk is dirty and getting a bad connection causing the dash lights to flicker dim to bright and so on. Try turning the reading and dash lights on and off several times moving the rotary switch from all the way off to all the way on abd back several times. This sometimes will clear the problem for a period. If not, the light stalk will require replacement.

The parking lights are turned on when the headlights are on and you pull out on the light switch. The parking lights cannot be turned on by themselves.
