    This was sent to me and it worked;
    The fuse block is located under the right side of the dash. Check the fuse called "INST LPS" fuse # 15, it's the one located in the 5th row across and 3rd one down. If the fuse is good, with the ignition in the on position check for 12 volts at the dimmer switch assembly this is a dark green wire. If you have 12 volts replace the dimmer switch assembly, if not repair the dark green wire. Hope this is helpful to you.

    I had a similar problem. My interior lights would flicker when I hit a bump in the road and eventually they would stay on. It turned out to be bad courtesy light switches in the door. They are located near the rear of the door opening about mid way down. You have to remove the door panel to change them out. Good luck.

    Default Amazing connections !

    I am surprised that there are several different solutions to the dash lights issue. Occurs to me we need to form a team to investigate flaws in the GM wiring. Just maybe a solid fix could from it. Seems a lot of folks are having the same failure with the dash lights. Just saying...
