good morning

the first thing I would do is go to the back of the cluster and check the connectors and see if there are any loose or damaged pins. bad connections are common for this issue.

did you move the connector around to see if you can re create the flickering??

I tryed to wiggle and it does not recreate the flickering of dash lights
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 4 months ago

then the issue is most likely in the cluster. if all connections are good then that leaves the cluster

That can affect all dash lights on bottons and gauges ?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
My cluster and gauges are all individual
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 4 months ago

sure, the connector in the back feeds all the cluster functions

can you post a picture of your dash cluster?

Roy

thats what I thought. it or all the lights, etc. are fed from the connector in the back.

last 6 of the vin?? I can try for a wiring diagram to get the feed wire and see if you can monitor the voltage.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
The relay right ?
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 4 months ago

yep and the feed at the fuse block to be sure power is not flucuating

Ask Your Own Medium and Heavy Trucks Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I changed the relay, checked the power it's all good, but the problem is still there with flickering
Technician: roybelding, Shop Foreman Freightliner trucks replied 4 months ago

I did not say to change the relay. I said to monitor the voltage and see if it varies. you need to leave the voltmeter on it while the event happens. if there is no issue with the voltage, then it is the cluster
