Hello my name is***** am an ASE Master Technician and I am glad to help you out with your question.

Have you checked all fuses?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
there are no fuses burned out.

When you say dash lights, do you mean the lights in the cluster of all lights on the dash?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Every light on the dash, and only at night or on really dark cloudy days. Other times they work.

I have seen problems with the body control module causing this problem, I have also seen loose battery cables and grounds cause this as well.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Ok. I will check the battery terminal first, and then look into the BCM.
