Wiring problem. If it's intermittent you probably just have a loose wire. Reach under the dash with your park lights on, better if it's a little dark. GENTLY wiggle the wiring behind there and see if they flicker. If they do you found the problem. Follow the wires that are affected and just push the plug in a little tighter. You may also have a ground problem. Same as above, but know you have to locate the particular wire causing the problem.

that's usually caused by a bad ground wire or a loose connection on the back of the dash,next time it does this lightly tap on the dash and see if that makes it work again if it does you need to pull the dash out and clean all the connection points on where it goes together at,that should take care of that part of it,as for the radio it may have just went bad,but it should also be checked for loose wires,but on those they usually just go out,and you have to replace them,good luck.
