The most likely cause for the intermitent issue with your lights is a bad connection in the front park lamp sockets. The center contact in the bulb socket is S shaped spring steel, which looses its springiness over time. Start with the front park light sockets. Remove the lens, and bulb, then slightly stretch the center contact outward, then reinstall the bulb and see if the dash indicator still sees a problem.
