Dash Warning Light "Flicker"

I have a 1992 600 SEL, and once in a while, while using either the turn signals or the wipers, the dash warning lights will all come on for just a brief "flicker", and then go out again.

They come on normally and then turn off upon start-up, and don't do this unless that one stalk is used, and it doesn't even happen EVERY time that stalk is used.

Any ideas on what I'm looking at to fix this??
Pinched wire in steering column??
Bad cluster??

Thanks for the advice on where to start.
I would imagine that the switch itself could just be worn out, or maybe the contacts are just dirty. The car has 126k on it.
I'll try some contact cleaner, and if no improvement, dig into the steering column.
