    Help - odd sequence of warning lights

    I pulled on to the freeway this afternoon and had to gun it to get into my lane. The engine started to bog as if the parking brake was being applied on and off. The tach needle was see-sawing back and forth. At that stage I noticed that the DSC light had come on. I hadn't engaged it, so I tried to turn it off, to no avail.

    I pulled off the freeway and at that stage I noticed that the parking brake warning light was glowing orange - never seen that before. I turned off the engine and waited for a minute before resatarting. I had to crank the engine several times as it was reluctant to fire. The lights all came bak on again, but this time the SES light stayed on, and idle speed was 750-800 and not the normal 600 rpm.

    I checked the brake fluid level and it was OK. With hard acceleration, it still bogs but apart from that and the high idle and starting problems, it seems to run OK.

    Any suggestions???

    Failing Crankshaft Position Sensor

    It appears that the Odd Sequence of Warning Lights was due to a failing cs position sensor.
    Problem solved!
