This sounds like a misfire issue, possibly something going on with the battery. The check engine light flashing normally means there is a misfire. The cruise light flashing is normal because of the check engine light being on. The odd bit is the instrument panel. It's actually telling the level of the interior lights. This ordinarily won't happen if it's just a misfire.

Can you tell me if the battery and brake light are also on?
