There are two things that could cause this problem. You either have a bad ground somewhere(like the grounding strap that goes from the engine to the frame, the one going from battery to frame, or something similer, or your alternator is going out. It sounds like the voltage regulator in the alternator is going out(will cause the computers to make the instruments do funky things)which would require alternator replacement. The difficult part of it, is unless it is doing it continuously, you won't be able to bench test the alternator and get reliable results. I suggest that you check the grounds, to rule them out, and look at a replacement alternator if that fails to fix the problem.

The check engine light will represent fault codes that the computer is sensing. Have a mechanic, or go to your local auto parts superstore and have them scan for the fault codes. This will at least give you an idea about some of your problems.
