I've seen the radio display LEDs fail that way/pattern need to remove and get the panel repaired but it may be just a bad connection no way of knowing without getting in there when the component is failing. On disassemble you may find the poor connection. There are several companies that specialize in instrument cluster, heater display panel and original stereo equipment repairs.
