help on dashboard light problem

had coach in storage for a number of months and now the dashboard gauge and transmission control center lights are continually blinking like a turn signal. Blink for maybe 30 or so seconds and then stops for 30 seconds to 5 minutes and then resumes. Turning the chassis battery switch off stops the light issue and coach starts up without a hitch so batteries fine. Is not related to the flashers as it continues when flashers disconnected. Have checked grounds and lubed them to no avail and have pulled light switch and disconnected it with no results either. Wondering if it has anything to do with smart wheel control, but not sure.

Anyone experienced this type of problem or have other ideas to resolve issue.

Just a thought, try disconnecting the batteries, the main ground cable on the batteries for about 5 minutes and let the ECM and Trans computers to reset. That might clear your problem.

The gauge & trans control lights are dimmed off the dimmer by the headlight switch. Try rotating that full cycle up & down a coupla times.
