4 times while driving all the warning lights flashed and the bells rang, brake light came on, check engine light came on and lasted about 10 to 15 seconds.
at the same time the speedometer hands started going back and forth along with the hands on the tacometer.

then another time I parked and went in a store and when I came out I turned the key and nothing happened. I put the car in reverse and coasted back a couple feet and then the car started like normal.

Coming down the road the lights and the speedometer hands started moving back and forth again. I took it to a local dealer and they put it on the computer and nothing showed up. Whats up?

Question; When the dash warning lights all came on while you were driving, was it the same as when you turn the key to "on" without starting the vehicle? If yes, I would say it's the power control module. This is located under the hood on the left inner fender well.

Generally when all the lights come on like that it is a loss of communication somewhere in the bus system.I have personally replaced a few instrument panel control module for this condition
