Okay, I asked this a while back, checked Tech Info and fouind nothing that helped at all.
The DIC flashes every now and then, or it just shuts off compleatly, resets my tripometer, sometimes the odometer and Tripometer does not light up, but the Lamp Monior does (burnt Tail). Usually, it will flash a few times upon start up, as if its shorting ouit, then it doesnt come back on.
My guess is, I have a corroded ground wire somewere. Any ideas?

What kind of shape are your battery cables in??????

Check the cables for excessive corrosion at the battery ends inside the terminals.

Remove your instrument cluster by the procedure in Techinfo, and carefully take it apart layer by layer. Then clean the connections on each layer one by one. Be very careful.
