Went to start the car last night and all the idiot lights were on. Brakes, check engine, cruise, traction control all on and some flashing. Any idea what might be wrong??

I pulled this off of the NASIOC Forum Not sure if it will help---Sounds like an alarm system is being triggered. Any chance your car could have an alarm installed that perhaps was only partly removed (e.g. doesn't sound horn/siren anymore)? If it was placed in an inactive mode, like valet mode, disconnecting and reconnecting the battery might very well have reset/reactivated it. Since 95% of aftermarket alarm "brains" are installed under the driver's side dash, I'd start looking there. Let us know what you find.--- Have you done any battery replacement or anything like that

Dash lights were all flashing..took to mechanic..they reset codes. Thought maybe parking brake got turned on during travel...hoping not computer
