There should be a cluster of black wires at (near) the back of the fuel gauge.

thanks Dan, you mean any and all black wires attached to the back of the instrument cluster housing from the engine side?

Have a look at the ground of your instrument cluster. It may be broken or disconnected and the lights are finding ground through the speedometer cable - the faster it turns the faster the intermittent ground may be.

its a alternator , speed of engine/alternator does not affect the flickering, revving engine at stand still does not create flickering, when coasting in neutral flicker happens , slow coast =slow flicker, fast coast = fast flicker, the faster the car moves the faster it flickers , at high speed the flicker is so fast that the panel lights almost look off

Are you using an alternator or generator? Sounds like the voltage regulator is acting up.
