Default Flickering lights in 2003 Turbo GT

I have a 2003 Turbo GT. About 2 years ago I changed the battery. Ever since then the dash lights have flickered. It's subtle when it's daylight but more noticeable when I have to turn on my headlights at night. Today I drove the car at dusk, no lights on, and when I used the blinker the whole dashboard went out, and then came back on. A very big flicker. At first I thought I was seeing things, but it happened twice more...not being a mechanic I am thinking it's electrical...can anyone give me anymore info?

bad grounds, ie: loose/corroded/missing/etc...These cars have poor wiring and it doesnt take much to get weird flickers. A lot of us add extra grounds and/or up size. Im running 4 guage wires normally called the big 3 and no more issues
