    I have the exact same problem...did you manage to get it fixed? If so, how?

    I have a 1999 with the same problem. Initially it was a bad alternator, had that changed and lights went out (also cleared up transmission shift problem). Now the lights are flickering again. Tested alternator output to battery and got 15+ volts which should be good. I'm going to take it back and have the mechanic check, change or adjust the belt and see if that does it.

Interior lights flicker on and off with warning that doors are open sign on dashboard comes on at same time


Open each door (one at a time) with the car running and parked.
Look for the small contact switch that tells the car the door is open/shut.
See image for location.
Press that switch in firmly and watch the dash to see if the light comes on while you are pressing.
This will tell you which one of the switches is bad.

My dashboard and gauges keep flickering on and off


sound like you have a lose connection it could be the cables on to the dash or the socket it fits to. you would need to remove the dash and clean the connection and re fit it. if you push on the dash does it stop. ? just check this first as some times its just a tiny amount of play in the connections that's the problem .

I have a warning light that flashes so fast I can't tell what it


Wow. Ok. That was a pretty rude response you received there form r_clark. Let's see if we can find a reasonable way to help you.

When you first get in your car, instead of starting it right up, turn the key to the "on (or run)" position. With the key on, but the engine off, most of your warning lights will light up and stay lit. Some may go off after a few seconds. Draw a quick sketch of the layout of your dashboard before doing this. Then, with the warning lights all on, jot the name and location of each one on your sketch. The next time you are driving, when the light flickers on and off, you should have a fair idea of what it is.

Also, if you are in the process of actually starting the car when this happens, keep in mind that when you turn the key through "on" to "start" and then release it, the vehicle's self test for the dash will turn all those warning lights on, then off, briefly. Certain important lights will come on last and only flicker on briefly. As long as they are doing that during start up, they are ok, and it just means the lights are working properly. If they are actually flickering on while driving or idling, then you have a problem, but likely not a serious one yet.

Hope this is helpful, good luck, and let me know how it works out!
