black 81 corvette 4-speed
I think my dash lights are possesed! My dash lights will blink on and off go out and when I slap the bottom of the dash they come back on! I checked the plug in the the circuit board its pushed in all the way in and tight. Also I would like to point out its only the instrument panel lights that do this the lights over the console ect are not effected. Im stumped!

The only device in that circuit besides the fuse is the rheostat on the headlight switch that regulates the brightness of the instrument lights; its windings or the wiper that moves on them may be dirty. I'm not familiar with the '81 cluster, but the ground may also need cleaning.

Im leanin more toward a bad ground connection. That would cause a flicker in one cluster and not the other.
good luck
