Dash, Tail & Head Light Flicker

So I have been having this issue for about a month and it has been getting worse and worse. When driving at night my dash lights will randomly turn off (Lights, Gauges, Everything) Head lights and tail lights also flicker at the same time. Usually this happens 3 or 4 times within a minute or two. It has no effect on the radio or the cars performance but obviously a problem. Anyone out there experience the same problem. When this happens I can hear a relay click from under the dash.

Is it possible that it could be a bad relay not the ignition switch.

I guess the malfunction stalk is the multifunction stalk when it malfunctions.

Hmm...so it could be a few different things. Well here is what my car is doing. Let me know if it is the same as yours. YouTube - Jeep dash lights.

Only my lights were flickering, dash and headlights, taillights. My gauges were ok as well as compas and oddometer. Looks different to mine. May be ignition switch as suggested elsewhere. Cheers.
