every dash warning light went on

I was driving my car when all of a sudden every single warning light on my dash went on. Also, my odometer went blank, my speed and RPM's all went to 0. Basically it all shut down. Luckily my car is still able to drive. This flashes on and off randomly while I am driving and/or stopped. My car is currently at the Ford dealership. Their response was, "woa, I've never seen anything like this before! We'll run a diagnostic." This is only one of the many problems I've had with this car. NEVER buying a Ford again!!!!!!!!!

Update from Jan 11, 2018: I just got my car back from Ford. It turns out that I need a new Cluster module- about $950 and a new ABS module about $1500. 2 major electrical problems at 85,000 miles. Sounds like a a factory defect to me.
