flickering lights is mostly down to the alternator. if the engine id not running and it does this then there is a major fault in the electrical wiring. main light not working if it has gas type light with the converter they will only work if there is above 11 volts any low and they will not work stander bulbs will be dim or cut out the engine when they are turn'd on with a faulty altinator.
In some 1999/2000 Cougars the wire between the battery and the voltage regulator(altenator) had a resistance reading that is too high. Ford has issued an TSB 00-25-6 that has instructions on how to replace this wire. The part # for the replacement wire is

You do need an alternator. Nissan has a campaign on Maxima alternator in certain years such as 96-98 I believe. Go to your friendly Nissan dealer abd have them punch your VIN number into the NNA net. they will know and that will tell them if your vehicle applies by the VIN. I have seen the alternator on fire. There was fire inside of the alternator. Have it checked or the car can catch on fire.
indeed a fun one..i suspect a floating ground (poor ground) near instrument cluster causing the anomalies.....headlight circuit and signals are different so this makes sense .... if not fixed the instrument cluster will finally smoke and need replaced i think ...good luck
