IP lights flashing/ going out

Hey guys! I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but I'd like some advice.

Several times in the last week, I've started my '05 WK, and had all the lights in the instrument cluster start to flash, chime chiming furiously, only to have it correct itself 3 to 5 seconds later. I just sat there watching in disbelief LOL!!

The other time, while driving, all the IP lights went out completely, all instruments went to zero, and just as suddenly come back on!! The rest of the dash light continue to work. That was last week, this week, no problems.

Any suggestions? I'm thinking ignition switch?

Thanks
