Default Dash indicator lights flash when driving

2006 GT turbo. When I'm driving all my dash indicator lights flash off and on, sometimes the motor will stall, when on the freeway it stalls then starts back up. Any ideas?

Sounds like an intermittent connection in the "run" circuit. Basically the same effect as turning the key off briefly then back on.

If it were mine, I'd dig out all the schematics for the "run" circuit and check the connections, connectors, wiring and switches.

First time this happened to me it was the key switch. Electrical module on left side of steering wheel. next time it acts up while running push the key in and out if it stops it's probably the key switch or the part that connects the key tumbler to the key switch. both have a spring loaded plunger that are suspect.

I think finding the proper replacement parts for the Gen2's is a lot harder than for the Gen1's.

Is there anyone with a Gen 2 who had this problem been able to find the replacement parts?

edit: Oops, it looks like the guy in the video is working on a Gen 2 PT. Are those funky vent controls exclusive to Gen2's?
