electrical problems in 2006 grand jeep cherokee

Hello,

I have a 2006 grand jeep cherokee. Dashboard lights began flickering last year and then some (but not all) went out. Then fan would periodically not work - now only works on HIGH. Now my headlights have started flashing on and off periodically at very random times. Could this be a problem with either the relay system or dashboard sensor? How do I locate and check these things? Thanks

Fan is most likely the relay pack. Simple fix.

Lights sound like a lose ground wire somewhere. Finding it is going to be a pain.

Separate problem. This is a connection to the gauge cluster that is poor. Common Jeep problem.
