For 100% certainty, I would call Lutron's tech support at 1-800-523-9466. They're available 24/7 and can probably troubleshoot it more effectively than through this text-based dialogue. However...

I have three guesses...

1) Check the minimum load. The minimum load for those products is about 40-Watts. If there isn't enough lamp wattage pulling electricity through the dimmer, the dimmer may not have enough juice to keep itself powered up... and then shut down (hence any flashing you may see). If the issue only happens when the lights are at full (or close to full) brightness, then that's most likley your issue. To solve, either increase the lamp wattage, or replace with a dimmer that contains a neutral wire such as the MAELV-600M.

2) Check the load type. The dimmer's are rated for incandescent & halogen. If these are LED or CFL lamps, you are going t see issues. For dimming performance, either convert the lamps to incandescent / halogen, or investigate their new Diva dimmer for CFLs & LEDs: DVCL-153P-

3) If neither of those solve the problem, the next guess is to check the wiring. I wouldn't expect this to cause any "flashing" but in the wiring circuit, each device had a blue screw attached to it, and you need to make sure that the blue screws are wired/connected to each other and ONLY to each other - otherwise "automatic" dimming can take place.

But again, the only way to be certain is to use their tech support. I highly encourage you to use that.

Dash lights come on with the headlights then shut off


Do you have a dimmer for interior lamps? Like a rheostat, a little wheel that you turn up or down to brighten or dim interior lamps. Usually the instrument cluster lamps brighten and dim the same way.
Can you brighten and dim the other interior lamps?

How do I brighten clock light it's very dim?


Is your clock part of radio assembly? There is usually a dimmer control for interior lamps, you rotate it to brighten or dim interior lamps--dome--instrument cluster--radio illumination. The same thing should work for the clock. If clock is part of radio assembly, I guess you can remove radio and dig into it, see if you find the wiring for clock illumination.

When i turn headlights on...radio lights go out..they come on when i turn dimmer switch..but then dome lights wont go off...tried it on all different positions...2008 patriot


It sounds to me like you may have a defective dimming switch. Are the instrument cluster lights working as they should? Do they dim/brighten with the dimmer? If the instrument cluster is working OK, then it could be an internal problem in the radio unit itself. Your panel lights are computer controlled. The processor in the instrument panel controls them. It uses a digital signal to "tell" the radio to either dim or brighten its lights. If the radio is failing to do so, the radio is the most likely cause since the lights work on "full power" which is also commanded through the same data lines. (this eliminates the signal from the cluster and the connection through the data lines.)

Dash lights come on when dome light goes out


The only possible location I can think these circuits cross is at the headlight switch.The dimmer rheostat or the wheel you turn to dim and brighten your dash lights also should turn on your dome light so I think maybe a new headlight switch assembly or rheostat should fix tour problem
