All these lights on the dash...

Can you guys please explain possible causes for all these lights (besides the check engine light since i havent check codes). Im tired of researching and thinking.

The lights come and go. One day i start the car and no lights (except check engine). The next day i start it and all the lights are on immediately and the car runs like absolute ****. The damn car is bipolar. I do make a lot of effort to keep it well maintained but I dont think it will ever be perfect.

I want to read what problems you all think my car has so you can help me jumpstart my brain storming. At this point im thinking its a bad DME. Would a reflash help?

What do you think?!?!?! This car is driving me crazy!!!!

take the car to a indy shop or dealer and have it checked out rather than "guessing". At least you can find out exactly what is wrong with your car and you can then decide if you want to have the shop do additional repairs to get your car sorted out.

Use advanced/title search for "eml, brake,abs" lights. Seems like once a week someone asks about those same 3 lights.

Autozone will read your codes for free, so I hear.
