    Check your fuel filter?

    Also is it an auto or manual?

    From what I see you may need a new abs module

    A faulty cas wouldn't create the dash lights issues when the abs module starts to go it shows signs of a faulty fuel pump and cas but see how u go if the problem happens after the fuel pump then start with the abs module for sure

    Check coil pack, the connections on mine come loose, I lose all engine electrics - doesn't sound exactly like your problem, but I thought worth a mention.
