Why would your dash lights flicker and your radio turn off when you push the brakes?
Hey bud, With all different circuits being effected as they are
, you have a earthing fault. Check your earth between body and -
batt and to engine also.
Try looking into the Transmission Range Sensor. I had the problem of my radio cutting out when I went into reverse. Then, it also went out when I braked and sometimes when I turned corners. Then it went out all together. At about the time this happened, my fasten seat belt light started flickering. The real concerning part for me was that my power steering has become unreliable too. Other things that have gone wrong all at this same time are my window wipers and my power windows. I've been looking for help on this site and found these two questions (adresses pasted below) and think it might be the same thing, although I haven't had the chance to try this and see if it fixes it.

Had that problem when still under warranty on my 02 when all lights would momentarily flicker, including the head lights, and the dealer replaced my alternator. There was a service bulletin put out on that problem. Also just recently, my lights would dim and I found a broken ground wire on the left front side on my engine block after checking all ground connections. Good luck.

Why would the gauge lights and radio lights go out when the automatic headlights come on in a 2000 Buick Regal LS?
Sometimes when cornering, the overhead lights will flicker on in that model car. This is due to a flaw in the switch mechanism design, which holds the relay connection slightly apart from the bulb (when they touch the light is energized and turns on). When the car turns the centrifugal force will bring these two points together and the light turns on. To fix this, remove the plastic dome and switch cover and look for…

We might need a little more information. Do the lights flicker every time you switch between low and high? Have you noticed that your turn signal stalk feels gritty or mushy? When you switch to high beams, do they ever flicker later, or just when you switch them? Do they ever go out entirely? I'm thinking that maybe the turn signal switch might be bad, but it's hard to say with no more info. FriPilot
