2008 Honda Civic DX Flashing dashboard lights

My mother in law's 2008 Honda Civic is acting up. When she starts the car the headline icon on the dash lights up and blinks. The entire dash also blinks including all the lights on the HVAC controls etc. This happens whether the headlights are one or off.

Headlights work and it cranks fine. I tried a google search but nothing came up with the headlight icpn being on. After 5 minutes, the blinking and headlight icon go away.

Any thoughts? Battery? Alternator?

I also have a 2008 civic, do you have a picture of the dash. Can’t quite picture the situation.
