sounds like your cpu in the car might be failing, giving bad readings causing the car to do all that crazy stuff. Its probably not a mechanical problem so you shouldn't have to worry about that but the car gauges falling to 0 and will not give a reading could lead to problems later including transmission problems. I would definitely take the car to a gm dealer unfortunately to test the cpu. They will be able to tell you more then me and maybe find the problem if its not the cpu.

Possibly a loose electrical connection at the main CPU plug? Has any work been done recently on the car?
