Lightbulb Lights keep cutting out

Hey guys I'm having some trouble. Lately (within the last couple months) my instrument cluster AND my a/c controls have been cutting in and out. Sometimes they just dim real bad, sometimes they turn all the way off. It's not for more than a minute.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the help,
Turboo

Start looking for a fuse that is loose first.

Yes. Item number is one is checking loose or broken fuses. Fuse numbers 11, 20, & 26 would be immediate suspects.

Could be that your dimmer switch is going. It fixed my problem. Not cheap either, it's a $95 dealer only item.
