These lights flicker and disengage the cruise control when engaged. I don't know what else it might be affecting. They turn on at park, while driving at any speed and also turn on whether the cc is engaged or disengaged. Where do I start looking for the problem? 94, new fuses. Not a new problem.

Those are your "Christmas lights". Usually indicates a charging issue, although your gauge looks fine in that pic.

I'd start with checking over all your grounds and make sure they are in good shape. I see your ebrake light is one that comes on, that could cancel your cruise control.

On a similar note, if you haven't taken care of your wiring harness its time you checked it out. Common failure points are.......
1) Where it passes close to the EGR
2) Behind the glove box where it rubs on a piece of sheet metal

^This. There's a ground in the driver side footwell that serves the cluster and the steering column switches. If your windshield has been replaced without sealant (very likely) water has probably gotten back there over time and corroded the connection. I'd bet cleaning it up fixes the problem.

That did happened when I had my windshield replaced and they forgot sealant and it rained and I brought it back for them to put sealant on rain did get into the cabin.
