Canada Dash lights flickering

Hey guys
I just got a 97 GC Limited (5.2v8)
At night while driving the dash lights are flickering. they never go out, but change intensity and brightness. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

The problem is usually caused by cracked solder inside the headlight switch. You can remove it and check the solder joints and just reheat them carefully to fix it.

Cool, thanks

Another thing to look at when I pull the dash apart (has American guages and need to switch out for Canadian).

Replace the headlight and dimmer switch coment. Around $100 for the part...good luck finding a used one from the wreckers.
