I am not sure of how many miles are on the vehicle but I have seen this on a few where the harness behind the gauges were loose.. if you try to fix it your self be very carefull as the cable in the center is the speedo cable also important is that some have a small very thin wire that is connected to the shift indicator ,..this has to be removed carefully with a phillip and possibly a torx bit type driver.
Do not just pull the bezal out like a beast when you are working on it or it will cost you. Keep in mind that some of the dash plastic that surrounds the bezel and a few swithches may have to be removed too.

My headlights and dash lights flicker and now my wipers dont work

If the car cranks well then might have a loose connection to dashboard or a bad ground. I don't think this is much help but might be a starting place.

I have a 2000 ponitac montana, my tail lights,and dashboard go on & off intermittently - today I took the van to the dealership, of course as soon as they put the vehicle on the diagnosis machine,...

My parents had the same problem with the dash lights on there Montana. After 7 trips into the shop we determined ourselves that there is a wiring harness that runs under the carpet on the drivers side in about the location where most people rest their left foot when driving. What was happening is the wires had worn through the insulated cover and was grounding out on the bare floor under the carpet. We were able to tape the wires and wrap them with hockey stick tape to prevent it from happening again. It is worth looking into.

Let's see if there is really a diagnostic expert out there for this... 1996 Plymouth Voyager 3.3L engine with 165,000 miles. I'm having intermittent starting problems. I can drive for weeks and no...

The way to approach this sreies of issues is to first remove the remote start/alarm from the equation and restore the vans electrical system back to original. From there, if it persists, we can do more trouble shooting. Let me know and I can walk you through the process. This is definately a problem that does require a diagnostician. Thank you for the level of detail you provided!

Dash lights flickered then van dies. Has new

possible crank position sensor fault .It's also likely that some of the dash gauges work intermittantly, or not at all.

1991 Chevy Blazer dashboard lights are burned out. Can't read

Your dash needs to come out. These bulbs push into a plastic piece that "twists" into the back of the dash board. (About a 1/4 turn) Unless you can get at them from underneath, but I think it's to tight.

Check that the tail light(s) are working. They act as a fuse to your dash lights.

Loose contact of dashboard light

This is usually a loosing proposition,  if the switch is failing, it is unlikely that cleaning the contacts will work long if at all.  Unless you time is worth less than $10 an hour, better off to get a new switch if that's what is bad.  Check for problems with a dimmer switch (if present)  for dashboard lights.
