THE LIGHTS ON THE DASH BOARD GOES FROM DIM TO BRIGHT. IS THIS ANOTHER ELECTRICAL ISSUE? IS IT WORTH IT TO GET FIXED OR JUST TRADE IT IN?

I also have a 2008 and just this week the fan kept running for few minutes after car turned off. Only happens if I have driven at least an hour. Never before has this happened, so is this normal?
