When I start my 2004 Mercury Mountaineer the check engine light flashes the battery light comes on and won't turn off the oil gauge seems to be rising in the battery gauge seems to be going lower.

Probably,factory installed alternator has failed and vehivle is only using battery power.Suggestion:Start engine and check available voltage at battery with DVOM.SHOULD be 13.9 volts minimum and about 14.5 max.if not in range listed.please have alternator checked for failure.

Dash board and or cluster going bad

Check your ground strap that goes from the engine to the firewall. It may be loose and moving, causing a disconnect.

In my 2005 F-150 when I start the engine all gauges flutter

sound like bad connection on the back of cluster, sometimes if you unplug cluster then reconnect that fixes it, if it doesnt then i would say cluster is going bad, good luck.
