That may not be the instrument panel itself, except the the panel going DIM...
If the EPS/BAS, ABS, and the SKID mark indicator come on, that means there is a problem with the system. Mine does it, and all them are on, STILL on (bad clock spring angle sensor). That's because either a sensor is bad, or the clock spring angle sensor is bad. If it comes on while you are driving, it is detecting an intermittent problem with the same areas; a sensor with intermittent readings, a short (rear mostly), tire rotation not matching front to back...
When I went on a trip to Missouri, on the way back, the jeep began to shudder and buck a little. I thought, OH GREAT, the transmission is going. Shortly after, all those lights came on. Then they would go off, then the same thing would happen again. So, when they went off, I pressed the button on the column for the ESP off, and it stopped all that shuddering and stuff from happening, and I was able to ride it with no incident; the lights remained OFF. For some reason, it was detecting wheel slip, and applying the breaks, then it realized there was an error, and let go, then flagged all the MILS accordingly.
What you do, when all the lights are off, press press the ESP OFF button, so the skid marks light up, then drive it, see what happens. That shuts the ESP off, so if it is a error in that area, the MILS won't come on.
I dunno why the CES light comes on... If you are getting implausible fuel level, check to see if the fuel pump was recently replaced. I was just at a shop a few weeks ago. They previously replaced the fuel pump in a Liberty, and the woman brought it back, while I happened to be there, for that problem. They fixed it, just a possible solution... It could also be a problem with the circuit at the tank... If the fuel gauge acts normal, who knows.
What sucks, is if one sensor is bad, ABS, BAS (Breaking assist), ESP, all get shut down, and none of it works once they all light up. They all depend on those sensor readings, exclusively.
