I had an interesting ride into work this morning. First i started up the 5.7 for 10 seconds before ALL the lights flickered on my dashboard. They stayed on for 3 seconds then went off. Sitting there like a deer in headlights trying to figure out what just happened, and it happened again. ALL the lights came on and i also noticed the interior fan speeed increased without me touching it. Drove to work which is only 7 miles away. While i was driving the same thing happened again. This time after the lights went out 2 lights remained on
Electronic Stability Program (ESP)/Brake Assist System (BAS) Indicator (22)
Traction Control/Electronic Stability Program (ESP) Indicator (16)
The other thing that happened was the gauges - spedometer and RPM gauge both went to 0 and then went back to normal while i was driving.
When i arrived at work i did the computer test and recieved an erorr of
U1417. I've read that this is a speed sensor but why would this cause all the lights to activate.
Ignition swtich is likely the problem as your battery seems somewhat recent. It's only about $50 if I remember correctly and about one hour to install. Instructions might be on here if you search or are in the service manual
I agree- I had almost the exact set of problems and the ignition switch solved them for good. Mine wad about $40 and I changed it in about 15 Mins in the driveway. Do a search and you will find a thread or two with step by steps
