Wazzup, I had a similar experience as you. I was cruising on Santa Monica Blvd. when all of a sudden the lights on my dashboard started flashing. First was the traction conrtol lights, then the engine, then the blinkers. Next the radio started to go on and off. A few minutes later, the engine went dead. Luckily, I pulled over before the engine died. Can you imagine my embassassment to have a new car die on Santa Monica Blvd?! Anyways, I called the Lexus road service and had it towed to a nearby dealer. The whole problem was because of a faulty alternator. The battery was drained which caused the electrical system to go haywired. I suggest you look at your voltmeter to make sure the charge is between 9 and 15 volts. If it's below 9, your car is not getting power from the alternator and the battery will drain soon.
