I have several things going on with my car. First, every once in a while, all the lights on my dash will come on as I am drving as well as my gauges jumping. Lately I have the antilock brake light, trac off light, service vehicle soon light, and my brake light that come on if I press the brake down to shift into gear. When this happens, it feels like I am trying to drive with my emergency brake on or with the brakes pressed down. Then my car will jump forward as if the brakes released.
The lights sometimes do not come on if I hardly press the brake down to shift.

I was told before that my front passenger bearing was going out, but then I was told by another mechanic that it was only my brakes and rotors. Could the bearing be causing a problem or the sensor? I am very broke, and can't afford $100 an hour for the dealership to look at it.
Do you

First of no the bad hub assembly is not causing your electrical gremlins. Your electrical gremlins are probably cause buy the body control module (BCM). This controls all the lighting and interior lighting and such. Here is a diagram that you can save and print so you can see where it is if you have a digital multi meter and would like the help to diagnos it then let me know and I will find the diagnostic procedure and we will go through it. Let me know and Thanks.
