You mean on and off? Is it random or a constant flash, like a watch or clock? I would try to "clean" the dash light level switch by moving many times from bright level to low level. It may clean the contacts thereby. Otherwise, check connections to that adjustment switch. Or, replace the switch.

My ford ka has started to judder

It is probably ignition failure. Hard to diagnose with out witnessing it. I wud replace the wires to the spark plugs and the spark plugs themselves. If you take it to a service shop they will probably do that first and charge you more.

My dashboard lights are not working can not drive at night

Power for the instrument cluster passes through fuse 6 in the battery junction box and is applied to the main light switch. When that switch is set to park, 12V power passes through 5A fuse 18 in the central junction box and is applied to the dimmer module which is part of the main light switch. The dimmer output goes to the instrument cluster as well as a bunch of other stuff. If you have to troubleshoot, just work your way through the circuit as I described it, checking fuses etc. until you find the problem.

My dashboard light for 2002 Ford KA not working, even after replacememt

Could be the small bulbs in the speedo unit have simply blown over time . You just remove the speedo unit and they tun about 90 degrees to unscrew . They cost a few pounds and you can get different colours these days.

My 2000 Ford Ka Collection passenger seat floor is soaking wet, its not leaking down from under the dash/glove compartment. no where else is damp lets alone soaking. the car is parked on a forwrd slanting...

hi, i have a 98 ka and my passenger side was soaking after raining, tried checking the drainage under the plastic of the windowscreen, couldn't find it. If you take off the radiator bottle you should see a rubber bung where the electric wire goes through, if that is a bit loose it will leak water through, go round it with sealant and this should solve the problem, worked for me!
