HELP. My car or myself must be possessed. My dash board lights up for no reason. All the lights – seat belt, engine, oil, etc. Also the speedometer goes from 0 to 100, the RMP needle goes from 0 to whatever and my gas tank need goes from empty to full to back to empty. In addition it is now loosing power --no gas is getting where ever so I must pump gas peddle to get it going again. It usually lasts only seconds and there is NO rhyme or reason to when it does it. I left it with a dealership and they drove it 265 miles and it did nothing. I got it back and within 48 hours it started doing it again. They did put in a new instrument cluster and it still continues.

I would start to suspect the Body Control Module.

The BCM is the gate keeper for the Controller Area Network or CAN. The BCM allows computers/modules to communicate with each other.

If the dealer installed a new instrument cluster, and the same problem still occurs intermittently, then the BCM would be the next suspect.

Check battery and ground strap wire. Both may need replacement.
