Intermittent Dashboard Lights in Malibu?

I have a 2013 Chevy Malibu, my dashboard lights go off then come back on, during that time all of the meters go haywire until the lights come back on. This happens sometimes multiple times in a row. My interior lights don't go out or dim, what could possibly be the problem?

Normally in the glove box of cars you can find fuses for the lights. You could also have sensors in there instead of fuses. Check this and make sure you don't have a short or one is not burned up.

It could also be a part called a body control module, if your car is equipped with one. We have a 2004 Toyota Camry and the dash lights all started turning on and off by themselves, there was a clicking sound under the dash and there was also a no start condition.


The BCM is central to electrical systems in our car, perhaps this is the cause of your symptoms.

You could have a faulty sensor. You will probably have to take it in for serving. Cars these days all have computers and the auto mechanic shops have the tools to diagnose and fix the problem
