Consider getting this info on ADDING Hydrogen power to your fuel. Raises fuel mileage 25% to 50%+.
Imagine if it works - raise your fuel mileage to 21+ in stop n go driving, up tp 35+, maybe 40 mpg with a steady low cruise on the highway, at 60-62 mph.
only costs $170-$200 if you can do it yourself, if you can change pcv / oxygen sensors / plugs / fuel filters, YOU can do it.
Else, pay a mechanic an extra $200 for 2 hours work for him/her to install in 45 minutes.

As you say the tacho/speedo come "back up to normal" after the incident, I assume that they either stop working or become erratic while the dash lights are misbehaving.
If so, this sounds like a dash wiring electrical problem.
The O/D OFF light is lit by the switch on the shifter (switch also inputs to the ECU). The ENGINE light is driven also from the ECU but the SLIP light is driven from the ABS/VSC computer, although these two computers do communicate.
Best plan of attack would be interrogate the ECU for error codes or ask a Toyota dealer to do so. At least you'll have some clue to any problems that the ECU's may have picked up.
Contact me about checking for ECU error codes if you want to attempt it yourself. Although the Caldina has an OBDC2 connector, as I understand it it's not 100% compliant, so you'll need a Toyota compatible reader. Fortunately teh codes are also output via the CHECK ENGINE light.
If there's no problems there, I'd be pulling the instrument cluster and checking for wiring problems. I'm not sure where in the world you are but most ex- JDM vehicles could have modified with timers, speed-cut or fuel-cut devices that either have been poorly installed or are playing up and causing electrical problems.
