Re: my dash and info panels keep on turning on and off
You have a serious electrical problem. Have you had the radio worked on lately? What was the last service done? Go there and look for the wire that is grounding out your system. It will probably be a little fried. Hope it helps

Make sure the battery has a full charge and all connections good. Then check your charging system. Right now I'm thinking, check your charging system.
Do you have a voltmeter on your dash, what does it do when you step on the brake? It may drop a little, but, it should recover.
watch temp gauge in dash and don't get it hot or you can ruin the engine. sounds like the heater core is still leaking. don't know your weather but usually you can bypass the heater core under the hood by unhooking the lines going into the dash from the engine and hook the two hoses together which will keep the car from overheating but you won't have inside heat. hoses go from engine to dash area and are a little smaller than a thumb
if you are talking about the engine electric cooling fan..it will run after car is turned off until temp goes down then it shut off..unless you're talking about the heater blower motor..then i would look in the engine compartment passenger side firewall for the heater box ..on the box there is speed control resistor for the heater fan speed..that might be shorted.if not fan switch on dash..give more info next time..it makes it easier answer with more info
Disconnect the negative battery terminal. Disconnect the top and bottom hoses from the heater core next to the firewall) Pull off the steering wheel Undo the steering wheel bolt. Undo the 3 screws holding the steering wheel cover in place, unclick them and put to the side. Undo the centre console Undo the glove box - you'll need to manipulate the stops on the inside and let it fall to the floor before - undo the two bolts at the bottom. Remove the Instrument panel, radio, radio frame. Undo the single screw in the bottom of the casing surrounding the vents control, gently pop out the vent plate. Undo the 4 screws holding the vents controls in place. Remove the frames that are holding the vent controls in place (either side of the centre colsoles (or where they were) Remove the two side vents (push down and pull back). Remove the two bolts (either side) that are holding the dash up. Remove the two bolts (bottom left corner, bottom right corner) that are holding the dash up. Gently pull the dash up and forward to (making sure you don't pull any wires off there guides and place to the side). Put the dash to the side (resting on the front seat) The heater core should be sitting in the middle of the dash. Remove the four bolts (two top, two bottom) and place to the side. Pull the heater core back and move to the side to clear the holes in the firewall. Manipulate the heater core to the side and move out through the gap in the dash and the cross bar (it is a tight squeeze but you can get it out) Installation is the reverse of all the instructions. when you have finished installing the heater core make sure you bleed the engine with coolant Top up the radiator - keep the cap off, turn on the engine, turn on the heater on the heater to full, with the engine running keep topping up the radiator as the water runs through the new core...keep doing this until no more water goes through - this last step takes a while so be patient otherwise you will start to drive the car and will have an overheating engine very quickly...
Check the dimmer switch to your dash light. If there turned down, your dash and radio illumination light will be dime or not working at all. Keep me posted, be glad to know if it is the dimmer switch turned down or you dimmer switch has gone bad. Good luck
WELL YOUR 12 VOLTS TO THE PARK LIGHTS ON EXTERIOR OF CAR COME FROM THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH.. ALSO THAT VOLTAGE FEEDS THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER... KEEP IN MIND THAT THE DASH DIMMER MIGHT ALSO BE BAD... WHEN YOU TURN ON PARK LIGHTS YOU SHOULD SEE THE DASH LIGHT FUSE GO HOT IF NOT SUSPECT THE HEAD LIGHT SWITCH
