    I barely make it work everyday. the car runs great but only for a short time, like 12 miles when it begins to tug as I slow down then it stalls out. I put it in park it starts right up, then stalls out as soon as the shifter hits reverse. The digital dash also has a mind of its own! Can you please give me a clue?

My dash board flickers off and on and eventually stays off for a while and then it flickers on and off again. I was told the dash is going out, but does this have to do anything with the gas needle not...

It will cost you $1400 for dealer to fix it.
The problem is on your dash. You need take out the dash. and change 3 capacitors on your dash board. If you are handyman, you will spend about 1 hour to fix it.
Good Luck

Lights started flickering battery light came on Dash lights and gages went crazy now wont start

Like you said, battery may be flat. You can check that with a multimeter.

Next check the alternator. Faulty alternator leads to uncharged battery.

The lights on my dash board flicker on and off then turn off.

I had the same problem some time ago, lights would go on and off, odometer appeared to stop counting at times rpm gauge would work and then not... power steering would off and on work and head lights would blink on and off when in driving light mode (off position).. The fix for me was I had to have the dash computer replaced (about $500). After doing this around 50k miles ago all the gremlins seem to have remained gone.. Hope this helps
