This problem occurred at the 30,000 mile mark. There is apparently a problem with the printed circuit board for the dashboard lights. A third party repair shop apparently put a clamp on the part of the printed circuit board which was separating, and I've never had the problem since. It cost over $300 for this repair.
My instrument panel lights go out EVERY day/night. If my car is cool then my lights come on when I start the car, I always drive with my lights on, after a few miles the instument lights just shut off. I bought the car this last winter and did not notice a problem and then the warmer weather came and I noticed it. I originally thought something was loose. Now it is cold outside and they stay on for longer period of time but still go out. I did some research and this is evidently is a common problem. It is a safety issue when you can not see how fast you are driving and I wonder why they has not been a recall?!?

Interior dash lights have not worked since 15000 miles, the brake and door lights flicker in the rain or cold weather
A couple of the instrument panel lights are out. One seems to come on intermittently. The dimmer control seems to work normally. I have not tackled the problem yet.
