In the small fusebox with the clear cover close to the false firewall, to the left rear of the battery there is a removable "main power relay" in there. Can't remember, maybe it's orange? Replace it with a new one or known-to-be-good one. This solved this exact problem on my '93 Aero. Dash light flicker, sometimes complete ignition dropout for a split second, sometimes the radio would shut off and the antenna would start to retract, gauges went wonky, TCS triggered issues, etc. Checked all my grounding points and they were good. This problem started small and "ignore-able" and after almost a year worked it's way up to all the problems I described. I replaced the relay I mentioned....ALL problems gone! Give it a try. Whatta ya got to lose! Good Luck! Bob
