hi all, car was cold ,started driving and the fuel,speed and temp lights all stayed on for bout 5 secs.. then bout 1 hour later it happen again. the headlights went out but dash stayed illuminated, so i turned lights off and lost all readings from didital dash, just the light was present with no numbers or letters for fuel avg or the odometer gone too. got home and tested car for fault codes and code 12 present. i then restarted car and still no dash figures just the light is present, i have head lights now but no tail lights. all i done in the last day or so was fuel filter and nothing else..i asked the prevoius owner if they were aware of this and they no nothing..it a freind..please help.

The ignision module may be the issue.

changed ingnition module and was no help for the vp.
still cant get answer for the vq, i have found that there has been a muffler explosion in a small kind of way, which i thought was flange gasket but not to be. As soon as i turn head lights on i loose tail lights but i still have brake lights. I removed stereo and checked fuses and seem to be fine.
