Default Flickering instument panel lights and ac noise

A day ago the instument lights ( including the clock, radio, and dashboard lights) in my ford 500 started randomly flickering. At the same time my air conditioner (which has dual air) started making a choppy/pulsing like noise. However, the air flow rate is steady. The noise tends to stop when I am in idle or driving at low speeds. In idle the rpm will occasionally flux from aroud 500 to 1000 also. The fan speed controller also doesn't work, but this problem existed prior to the others. I have no idea what is going on and was hoping for some insight.

My main concern is that I will be moving in a few days and am worried about something going wrong during my 1,400 mile drive from South Carolina to Iowa.

Good idea to have it checked and repaired before moving , you will have enough stress without worrying about what can go wrong next if you ignore the symptoms.
