You have an intermittent ground...clean the end of the Black 1/0 cable from the battery where it attaches to the chassis ground with a wirebrush~

might be time for a brand NEW battery....they only last five years with this new tin/antimony alloy they are made of these days~

is it the overhead console? Map lights or do the interior light flicker?

It's the console lights, speedometer goes to zero, wipers come on, but the van keeps going. Cleaned the corroded battery cable today, hopefully that will help something. :)

what you have discribed is a bus issue. The network on the vehc. Head light come on. wipers come on. It is set up this way for safety. the BCM(body control module) talks to Front control module over the bus. The FCM controls the lights. So you can see why they come on if Bus goes down. Nothing like having your lights turn off by themself...lol One of the weakest points on these vehicals is the radio. It is hooked into the bus as well. you can unplug it from bus by unplugging the two pin wire at back of radio. you will loose steering wheel audio controls, if you have them. Radio is just a thought. This is where I always start when dealing with bus issue on these vehicals. I hope this helps.......Any questions feel free ask

My van did this as well. I replaced the metal battery connectors with lead connectors. Haven't had a problem in over 2 years since this was done. Fixed!!

Had the exact same light show crazy gauges on my t&c 2013. For us it turns out it was the blind spot sensor. Dealership mechs first tried the right side sensor and no change, BUT after they also replaced the left side, it was all good. Its been 6 months now and still good.
