2006 WK Help: Has anyone seen 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.



So, video link should work, I just watched it. Please, any ideas on how to fix this, or what would cause this would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your time and watching the video.

Mine had the exact same problem. Tried replacing the battery and it still kept doing it so I finally brought it into the dealer. Turns out its a bad ignition switch that causes it. It took them about 10 minutes to replace and the part cost around $20. Apparently it's a very common problem with the WKs. Mine hasn't done it since I had it replaced.
