Dash light flash

This happens irregularly. No correlation to hitting bumps or any thing else.
On the dash, I'll get the full "Christmas lights", reset the gages and the Ding, ding, ding..... Then back to normal. Car stays running. ( crosses fingers as panic sets in )
It's just started doing this, this past week, Maybe once or twice a day.
Bad Battery connection?
Ignition switch / key tumbler?
I don't remember which.
Who has "fixed this" Ign. switch by spraying contact/Maf cleaner in there?

I have taken one apart though, and will say that you do need to take care. Even though the parts are all relatively large (as compared to a watch?), but are finicky enough that you would want to have steady hands and a good memory for where they all go. Or take pictures as you go.
But the symptom is definitely the same as my switch. It really would rear up when I would use the turn signal switch, and only killed the engine after it had been doing it for a few weeks.
On the other hand, my '03 LS gave no prior warning when it went out and just literally died out of the blue going down the freeway. Oddly enough, when the GS finally gave out I was going down the freeway too. I guess it just "knows" when you're in an awkward spot.
