I would replace the light switch, but first I would have a confederate
go around and jiggle all the door jamb switches while I observed the dash lights. Something is loose, often the brightness control for the dash lights is the culprit.

    My '99 300M has the same intermittent interior light flicker at random.

    Several online posts and a mechanic at the Chrysler dealer told me that the wiring is glued right under the roof lining and often shorts out near the rear roof handles where the screw rubs the wire. Reinsulating any worn spots in the wiring and resecuring away from the handle apparently helps this.

Brake light flickers while driving down the road.


Check the brake fluid. It may be just low enough to occasionally turn the light on as you hit bumps and it sloshes a little. Add a little brake fluid to the reservoir and check the brake pads all around.

Multiple issues


2. Interior and exterior lights. The other day I was detoured thru an area; hit a hard bump and all interior lights went out. Upon further inspection found all exterior lights were not working except brake and turn signal which are fine. I checked the fuses. Ohmed the relay coil and contacts in a de-energized position which all apear fine. I even removed the light harness for my trailer lights.


Don't blame the bump, blame the assholes at Chrysler. Have it checked at dealer, you will get Front Control Module and Power Distribution Module both have internal shorts. Get your money out and slap down about $600 to have them fix it. This is a quite common problem with the Chrysler Vehicles. They are laughing all tghe way to the bank. No more Dodges for me ...............ever!

Lights


In my car the wheel on the light switch that controls the intensity brightness of the dashboard/interior lights is sometimes too close to being right next to the level of rotating the wheel so the lights are on continuously. I just rolled back the wheel a little and it corrects itself but if I drive a while hitting bumps etc. the wheel moves and I get the flickering of the inside lights. Outside headlights are OK though. I didn't know which lights you had the flicker.
