Dash Backlight Problems

Lately I have been having some issues with the backlights on my dash and stuff. If I turn on my lights during the day, and then turn on the backlights so I can see the radio, the backlight will typically turn on, but then may turn off for up to a few minutes and turn back on, sometimes it may flicker for a second. Has anyone had this problem, or do you know what i should check. Doesn't seem to happen when the headlights are off, and everything else seem to be working good.

Re: Dash Backlight Problems

its either the ignition switch or the light stalk.
05 WK very popular to have both of thsoe fail. BOTH are simple to replace. IGN switch is like 40-50 not sure on the headlight stalk.
