My engine got flooded in my rx8 2004 and I had to remove and reinstall the fuel pump fuse many times for hours. Later that day the central panel was working fine and I was playing music. The next day (yesterday) however, I was playing music and it would keep turning off, and i noticed the entire panel including the lights was turning on and off over and over again. Today it only turned on once briefly and hasn't turned on since. I was wondering if it may be a fuse problem, although i can't find the fuse for the panel, or if it may be an electrical problem. Does anyone know what the problem may be or how i can fix it? I tried posting on other categories but no replies.

The issue is a grounding problem. Wierd electrical issues that affect multiple components are almost always grounding problems. The most common culprit is the negative battery terminal, followed by the positive battery terminal. Disconnect the battery completely, clean the clamps and the terminal posts, apply dielectric grease to the posts, and then resecure the clamps to the posts.
If the problem is still there, come back and we can point you to other grounding points to check.
