Hello. It sounds like you have either a major computer failure or a failed instrument cluster. I would recommend enlisting the assistance of a qualified professional who has the necessary tools to test your instrument cluster for proper function based on the manufacturers recommendations. Once the cause of this issue has been determined, the faulty part can be replaced and any reset procedures that are necessary can be done. An expert from YourMechanic can inspect failing instruments and make the necessary repairs.
