turn the dimmer switch back up

probably just a fuse.

"The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the Presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president."

I am having the same problem on my O4 unlimited. Did you fix it? I tried replacing the headlight switch and that did not work.

Had this same problem, my dash lights would come on and off in my '94. I thought my parking brake may have severed a wire and was shorting out. Finally I started playing around with the fuses and the panel fuse seemed loose and kind of dirty. I took it out and cleaned it with my spit a little and stuck'er back in. Hasn't done it since...
