the dashes mean the cluster is loosing connection to the ecu (comm error) its also caused by a ground by the battery breaking/going intermittent (corrosion) i have a vid of me sabotaging my own wagon to show the dash's
(See below for Vid)

if the Pats failed the car would of just flat out died and you cant get the car started the LED on the dash would either be dead and never blink with key in or out or it would stay solid as solid is a failure of the module

the Yellow Exclamation warning light is a multi function error that covers both the transmission/cooling system..
its a possibility a ground is going bad which caused a misfire and the trans lurched in a way to trip the light or the auto trans lost connection to the cars ECU

if i were to put my thoughts i would look into the power/grounding system and possibly a faulty battery which can trip that as the cars ECU will not pop a battery light if the battery is wonky it usually only prompts that light (battery Light) when the charging system has issues

Well, she made it home. Went to Advance Auto and borrowed a code reader. All of the codes were related to the transmission's output shaft sensor so I'm thinking that everyone who said that it was related to the transmission gets a candy bar. Dropped it at the shop and we'll see what happens.

looking into the breakdown, "output shaft sensor" is the speed sensor. it will cause the dash to go all wonky.

its located on the trans casing where the passenger side driveshaft extension is.
I've personally never seen one of those sensors fail so that one got me xD

Trans relies on a solid output from it to set up shift strategies and why the light came on.

The light like said is typically for an upper scale cooling system fail or trans issues.

Update. The shop had it for a day and fixed it. It was the output shaft sensor. $150 and the car works again. If it had happened on my day off, I probably would have tackled it myself, but we both need cars and I just started a new job so blowing off work to work on a car is not in the picture.

Good news is that my rental from Enterprise was free because I had built up enough points. Woo-hoo!
