The fact that the lights came on means that your computer has "set" a trouble code. You can have it read at any Ford or Lincoln dealer, most repair shops, or FREE at most major auto parts stores. Once the code is read from the vehicle computer they can look up the code and tell you what the problem is. As an alternative, you can wait until the lights come on again, but the problem, whatever it is, could be more serious (as in costly) by then.

Intermittent Gauge Failure

I doubt it, but anything's possible.
The only thing connecting the two things would be the parking lights and dash lights, not the gauges.
Sounds like a problem with the body controller, or the wiring harness behind the dash. Advance warning - there are miles of wiring in a Jaguar. And the problem will have to be occuring for the garage to find it.
Do you think it only happens on trips, and not just local driving ?
Could be something heating up if you need 50+ miles to make it happen.

What does the flashing HOLD light on the dash mean

The hold light means your transmission is in a kind of special mode for it for driving on snowy or muddy and slippery kinds of conditions. It also helps in going down steep hills and such. That's the best way I am able to describe it for you other than it aids in bad driving conditions to help keep your vehicle on the road. On your gear shifter you have the big button on the left side that you push in when you change gears. Right below that button should be a small button that you push in. This should activate or deactivate the "hold" system. It should also deactivate when the vehicle is shut off if working correctly. I did my best to explain it and I hope this helps you.

Overdrive light on end of shift lever is flashing steadily wihile driving, only on backroads so far....owners manual says to have it serviced...change fluid or what?? 2003 e350 5.4l 12 passenger.

There is an electrical problem with the transmission. Stuck actuator or something. Get it checked, might be a $200-300 fix, that would cause a transmission failure down the road. It might even be the overdrive switch on the shifter.

I have a chevy suburban 2007 which when at stand still moves in and out of drive, locks open and close, lights on the dash flash and the transmission becomes sluggish

Sounds like the PRNDL switch is acting up. It is mounted on the left side of the transmission. Older models had a issue with these switches. The best thing is to have a scanner hooked up and watch the transmission data and check for codes.
