Alright guys, seems this isn’t the clock so help me out here. Watch the video attached. When I put the car in drive the clock and the shifter indicator on my cluster both dim, but any other gear they are bright. Never seen this before, what could this be? Lights are off on all gears. If I have it in park and turn lights on they act as normal and dim.

I will say it did seem to start after I swapped all the exterior bulbs in the car to LED ones which are all working fine.

Two thoughts - one is (1) of the old incandescent bulbs had a short or high resistance affecting the circuit (have seen that here when those bulbs approach EOL), other is the primary negative battery grounds (terminals, connection points to frame and motor) may be getting oxidized / and could use a good cleaning.

Got this resolved. Removed the LED bulbs from the brake lights, and put regular 3157 ones in, no more issues. Weird it caused that with the clock.
