I have a 2008 Honda Accord V6 30k miles. When I turned it on this morning all the dash lights starting blinking. Going dim to less dim and so on. The car drove fine, no issues. I restarted a few times and car running fine. No gauges work, and it looks like a disco in my car. The radio and center console on the dashboard are fine. Just in front on the driver it is not working, just blinking. My turn signals turn on correctly. I tried to set cruise control, it worked , but lights did not turn on. I cannot see if I have gas, what speed I am going or what my mileage is. Any ideas?

Hello, I would love to help you with any Honda or automotive questions.
souonds like the battery is weak, does the engine crank slower than normal?
I would have the battery load tested, like any electronic devise if the voltage is not corret the cars computer systems do not boot up correctly. To varify, hook up a jumper cables to a running car and start yours and if the lights do not blink ect it would be safe to say you need a battery.
I am still think you need a battery, you have a 2008 and this is 2011 and you are in extreme cold, this will make short life out of a battery
VSA is from the spinning and should reset when you drive for a bit, I would try to disconnect the battery and let it sit for a few mins and then reconnect. Befor you do this do you have the radio code?
well I will be back in a few if you need me, but do the battery disconnect for a few mins reconnect and try it out.
The voltage in your cars battery is enough for you to start the engine but not proper voltage to boot the computer that controles all of the insturments and gauges. (just think like this if your electeric goes out in your home computer needs to be rebooted) I would replace your cars battery ASAP and maybe check to see if you can get some kind of pro-rate if you have any kind of warranty left.
any thing else I can do for you tonight?
great please accept and leave feedback......
