Dashboard Lights

So this happens every once in a while but when im going about 70 or 80 and i start to break some what hard the lights on the dashboard( check engine light, oil, gas, headlights etc.) come on for about 2seconds and then go away. Has anyone experienced this or know why this is?

Sound like a loose connection affected by G forces. Look at the plug that connects to the instrument cluster and make sure that it is on correctly.

i dont know if it is a plug ill check it out though. It did it again today and it seems like it mainly happens when i hit higher speeds (70+) and then i put the car neutral.

The other possibility could be a loose ground connection between the engine and body.
