As I was driving home from work at 3am, all the lights on the dashboard lit up and went back to normal. This occurred 5 times within a 30 minute trip. At the same time the seat warmer turned off, my speakers were not working properly. Heat wasn't working properly. After the second time it happened I turned radio off, kept seat warmer off, and turned off heat but it happened again three times after that. In between these 5 incidents, there was one time that all the lights on my instrument panel went off completely. The only thing that was illuminated was the gear I was in. It was a very scary experience especially when you are driving on a highway and cannot see your speed. All the lights flashed on went back to normal when I drove the car again the following 2 days. One time per day only. My car currently has a recall on my ignition but no part has yet been released in order to switch out the defected part. I am thinking maybe their is a correlation between the defected part and the electrical issues?
