My car is possessed!

Ok, so I was out running some errands and on my way home I was stopped at a light when all of the sudden all the gauges on my dashboard started wildly swinging around and all the different warning lights started flashing on and off. I was like wft, is my car going to explode or something? I just kept driving home because my car was running completely normally and the gauges just kept on spinning around. So when I parked I though maybe if i turn the engine off then on again the problem will go away....but it didn't. I have no clue what is wrong, but with my luck whatever it is will be expensive.


Any ideas ?

While it sounds weird, I really don't think I'd get too excited too soon; those little "brains" in the car sometimes go bad on their own; maybe a trip to the dealer or your mechanic, he can run a diagnostic test and find out pretty quick what it might be...just smile at him, I'm sure he won't charge you..

Its caused by these strange airwaves called "the 909 force field" and its designed to disable the vehicle of anyone who tries to leave the vicinity


I was lucky...I made it out

Did any bright lights pass over??
That happened to my speedometer.
Needle thing used to just hop up and down. I had no idea how fast I was going.

Well it is better to have your car possessed than to have your car repossessed

That happened to my dad sort of. He bought a car from his friend. The car ended up being the friend's brother(who had died) who my dad was good friends with as well. Well there was this one section near where my dad worked (and they all used to hang out) and it kept dying out on him at this intersection...like daily! My dad was like "It must be joe playing jokes on me!!!"
