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.

I am now experiencing the exact issue except it's not just flickering the whole dash shuts off and then turns on again the engine runs fine with no interruptions but the whole dashboard will shut off and then it lights up as if I was starting the jeep up again. Any solutions ideas??

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