Gauges turning off randomly
Hoping someone can help with this. Every once in a while (twice last week and again today) my gauges just stop reading and all the warning lights come on (see photo). The van drives absolutely fine. The only other thing I found that doesn't work is the steering wheel volume controls.
When I stop and take the key out, the warning lights are still on. I can reset things by either disconnecting the battery for a few mins, or removing the shunt from the fusebox.

Does anyone have any ideas what this could be?

What year,engine,spec etc is the van.
I had that when I fitted a new radio, so pulled it out,then all was OK again,,so no radio now,!!
its a 2003 1.9 non turbo.
Funnily enough, I have taken the radio out and fitted a parrot

Was it OK before u fitted the radio??
Parrot is affecting canbus wires and not wired to a correct ignition feed I'd guess
I had a 'gauges dropping' issue a while back - don't think warning lights came on - anyway in the end it was diagnosed to a faulty alternator that was for some reason putting out more volts than it should have. Something to check if it turns out not to be the radio.
Thanks for letting us know ,good you solved it,check you battery to the alternator might have cooked it,
