    One light or all of the interior illumination when the lights are on on the car?

    If it's just one or two chances are its a blown bulb and the filiment just touches every so often when it immuminates. If it's all of them try fiddling with the wheel that adjusts the dimness of the dash (ammsuming you know about this) it may be there's a dead spot on it

    Check through all the fuses then, I think you will find one controls all of them but i'm not sure which one
