Randomly while driving or standing still I get a bunch of warning lights that come on, beep and blink. Sometimes it lasts a few minutes, sometimes it will stay on for a few days of driving and turning the car on and off. I also loose the rpm gauge when this happens and the A/C stops blowing cold air.


I have read that it might be the abs module but I would like some more feedback on what I should look at. I have of course checked fluids and decided to change the oil as well since it was time.

How hard would it be to fix myself? I have tools and I have worked on cars before, I also have a good friend (truck driver) who can help but he was unsure as to what the problem is.

Thanks for all your help!

Usually when I see multiple things going dead and the gauges stop working like you stated, the first thing I think of is some sort of grounding issue. Hard to diagnose ... even harder to track down. –  Paulster2 Dec 24 '13 at 4:55
