Lights flashing at start up

For about a year now, the clearance lights and inside dash lights flash some times when the engine is started. Not all the time, but about 75%. Newmar tech suggested it might be somehow connected to the key-less entry system, but have been unable to confirm this one way or another. It shuts off in about 5 to 10 seconds.
Anyone else have this gremlin in their coach?

Sounds like a loose ground someplace.
Either lamp ground strips or some thing off ignition switch.

I had similar gremlins in a 2008 DS 4323,ended up at the dealer a few times,eventually disappeared?? I have no idea what they did to chase the gremlins away!!! Sorry I am not of any help,but you aren't the only one that has these problems.I traded up to a 2013 DS,so not contending with those problems any more.

The same thing happened to our 2009 Dutch Aire. The light would stop blinking after a short time. Checked many things, replaced the chassis batteries and all was fine. I guess the lights would stop blinking after the old batteries charged a little.
