    all lights flicker when seat heaters are turned on. Checked connections and terminals, battery, and alternator. Everything tested good. But lights flicker and battery does seem weak.

In responding to rbenjami, I am not proposing the same solution for all who claim to have a similar problem because I don't believe that that is the case. When the gauges flicker periodically it may be a case of a bad body computer, which is a big deal and may be covered by warranty beyond the normal 3 yr./36k miles. For those with issues related to use of seat warmers, that is not uncommon and should lead to discontinued use.

1999 dodge caravan Door Ajar light will flash on and off as the car locks will engage and disengage while the interior lights flicker as the van is running. it was intermittent and now is full time...

its one of your door switches is not working right,, try giving all of them a good flicking by opening the door and pushing in the little pin that sticks out near the door lock this may clean any dirt off it, it also helps to give them a squirt with WD40 or some thing like that to check there free to move
ps,, the BCM is better than walking,,, just!

Automatic locks continously going off

I have a dodge caravan so I am not sure if it will work for you. My minivan did this while iwas driving as well as as the lights flickering(interior). What I did was to reset the alarm by putting my key into the driver side door and turning it left to right about 4 times this resets the system. Try it maybe it will work for you too.
