It's probably the dimmer switch. When the lights are flashing try pushing on the dimmer switch or moving it and see if they stop doing it.

Hi All,
I had dash lights going off and on on my 97 Grand Cherokee, it acted like a bad Dimmer Switch. I remover the switch and resoldered the circuit board on the switch and it works great.The problem was come and go for 2 or 3 years.
