My car will not idle by itself...and to start it i have to put my foot on the gas pedal. i have to keep my foot on the pedal a little bit to keep it running by itself, but only for a little while....

There seems to be several issues. Can't say a lot about the gauges not working except that relays power groups of equipment functions and if a relay does not provide power then the gauges can't work.

For a fast idle, a sequence called the "cold start sequence" is suppose to increase idle. This is triggered by an engine temperature sensor. Some cars have 2 with one working the dash gauges and the other is used to work the engine controls. Yours is likely either sending a signal that the engine is hot (and it is not) or the signal is missing.

When the engine knows it is cold, the idle will speed up until the engine is warm.

The dim headlights can be dim from a power drain, or the engine is not idling fast enough to charge.

Mitsubishi Triton V6 lacks power on acceleration

full power is only achieved when the engine is fully warm(operating temp).so if you accelerate more than, say, a third of the gas pedal,the car will feel sluggish.
this is more apparent when first starting the car in the morning in winter.almost like the car is going to stall.
most wear in the engine is leaving it to idle when cold you should always drive the car straight away from cold.then when hot turn on the a/c if required....

Car wont start

when you press the brake pedal the brake master cylinder vacuum booster takes vacuum away from the engine and that slows the idle speed just enough to trigger the low pressure oil light. Pull the oil pressure sending unit out and hook up an oil pressure test gage, if the pressure is above 15 PSI hot engine idle in drive replace the oil pressure sending unit.

2002 clk 430. my car suddenly won't shift out of park. I had no indications, malfunction warnings that there was a problem prior to this happening. Also now the ABS and BNS malfunction warnings are...

its sounds like the classic case of the stop lamp switch going bad,you step on the pedal,esp sees a difference in the pressures at the booster,but doesnt actually see the pedal moving because the switch has gone bad,also causing the vehicle to not come out of park because this vehicle is designed to not come out of park unless the key is in position 2 and the brake pedal is depressed.if you really need to get the car out of park to get somewhere,on these models i believe there is a flap of plastic just below the d on the shifter panel that has a spring on it,just put a thin screwdriver(i.e.-pocket screwdriver) and least 4 inches long,press it straight down and pull it out of park-with your foot on the brake pedal of course)get this fixed asap-drop the panel under the dash,under the steering wheel-on the brake pedal assembly,theres a part where the switch goes,get the part before you start the job and youll recognize it right away,depress the tab and turn it clockwise to remove it,on the new switch,pull the detent switch all the way out before installation,put some type of bar between the seat and the brake pedal with vehicle on and adjust the seat to press the pedal down and keep it down,install the switch and release the pedal slowly to push the detent switch back it,once its all the way down,grab the pedal by hand and slightly pull it towards you,it should click one more time,now its adjusted,put the panel back on and your golden,just saved about $200 bucks in diag. and install labor-good luck bud
