I had this condition on my 1998 Grand Cherokee. I discovered that it was worn contacts on the headlamp / interior light dimmer assembly. I cleaned the contacts and it worked for awhile then the problem came back. I replaced the assembly for about $100 and the problem went away.

Answermy 97 limited did the same thing, as well as the headlights momentarily turning off (while driving) with the headlight switch switched to the "auto" mode -- bad contacts in the rotary knob and panel dimmer; ended up replacing the headlight switch

I just had my 96 switch out took it apart found the soilder joints loose on the circuit board added a little soilder all better know. Had nothing to loose it was either do this or spend 100 bucks .

why do my lights flicker and interior lights flicker

Your lights may flicker because they power is really low. It is very common for them to flicker when there is a storm out.

On my Lexus I had an issue with the lights staying off when it was cold. This was the case for all of my dashboard lights. Then they would flicker back on. There are Caps on the board for the instrument panel that were blown. This was the case for my fuel cage that didn't work consistently work as well

Flickering lights, on a Cadillac STS, is usually a sign of a loose wire. When all of the lights flicker, it is an indication of a loose battery ground cable.

I would say 1 of your door switches are bad or your door doesn close all the way.

Either your IVR(instrument volage regulator) or a faulty connection from the harness to the cluster.

In most vehicles flickering lights is a sign of a failing alternator.

The primary causes for the lights to flicker inside on a 2002 Chrysler Sebring LXI is a loose bulb or wire. This can occur when the vehicle has experienced rough road conditions and excessive vibration.

Remove the dash and remove the instrument cluster, the lights are in the back of the cluster.
