Default Intermittent Problem-Blinking Interior Lights

I purchased a used 2000 Chrysler LHS last year and have noticed a problem that occurs intermittently. The lights on the inside of the car would click and flash. At first, it was happening in the early evening hours or when driving through my parking garage at work. It seemed that it was only the inside lights flashing so I thought it may be a short or something to do with the sensor that turns the headlights on. Then, a couple of weeks ago, the flashing and clicking was happening all the time, including my headlights. I took the car to my mechanic and, of course, the lights worked properly all during the weekend they had the car and have operated properly for me since. Then, two nights ago, my husband walked outside and told me that my headlights were on -- I had not used the car all weekend. Any idea what's happening???? Just as a note - there are other little things that seem to occur every now and then - like "driver 1" presets being lost, gas gauge pinging when car is half-full to full. Do I have a major electrical problem?

Default Same Blinking Problem

I have the same blinking problem described above, in a 2000 Chrysler Concorde LXi. I had a mechanic do the dielectric grease procedure described by Chrysler Tech, but it did not fix the problem! I took the car to another mechanic who thought it could be a failing security system. Any ideas what I could be dealing with here? I already had diagnostics done on the battery, starter, and alternator, which were all fine. This car used to belong to my boyfriend, who also mentioned to me a small leak one time when it rained!!! It was on the ceiling next to the driver's side window. Could this be the problem?? Someone please help! I'm already out $240 and it isn't fixed.
