Bmw 335i convertible: I drive a 2011 BMW 335i convertible with

I drive a 2011 BMW 335i convertible with 50k miles. While driving down the road all of a sudden the tach and speedometer and oil temp stopped working. The engine became sluggish, but not rough. Also the remote entry system won't let me into the trunk or lock or unlock the doors. Other symptoms are that the engine cooling fan starts immediately even with cold engine. The turning signals work but will not stop after completing a turn. Also the glove box and trunk won't release. The following lights appeared and are staying on; brake, airbag, seatbelt, abs, dsc deactivated. Ideas, please?
