2006 WK Help: Has anyone seen or heard of this problem?

I'll try to link the video of the problem. But basically all my dash warnings light up like i stalled, but then just start to flash. Then they go off but flash again. It just runs in a loop and keeps doing this while I'm driving. I don't stall, I don't lose any throttle(I was going a steady 50 mph the entire time even though the needle drops to 0 mph), my head lamps don't flicker or go out. I'm just nervous this may be the start of something worse and if this does happen again and maybe my head lamps do go out I'm in serious trouble.

Ignition switch or battery is on its way out. Try the ignition switch first. You can pick them up for about 25 bucks.

If it ain't the ignition switch, it's the multi-function stalk. I had the issue and the MF stalk replacement ($100 and easy install) fixed it and it hasn't come back since. Scared the $hit out of me when it happened though on a dark night in a place with no ambient light.

If you have a lot of keys on your ring I would suggest limiting the jeep keys to just the jeep keys. Chrysler ignition switches and lock cylinders don't like supporting excessive key weight.
