Are they dimming cause maybe the bulbs are going bad and need to be replaced. My dome light used to flicker when i had my amp wire zip tied to wires that were for car so i tied them to something else and they stopped flickering. Maybe when you got time take dash apart and take out the cluster and see if there's loose wires or pull bulbs out and see if there turning black.
