Question: Do i Fix a random flashing light on my dash?

the "D" for drive keeps flashing randomly whenever i start the car. can't tell if it is causing anything to happen, but most of the lights on the other buttons are gone - for A/C, vents, etc. shop says it'll cost $300 labor just to take the front panel out to replace bulbs. too expensive! But will this lead to other electrical problems if I leave it?

Also check your transmission fluid level as low fluid can cause the light to come on.
