speedometer works sporadically(mostly stays on "0")
battery function goes up & down from high to low
brake light and brake systems lights are on when brake is off
symbols under the brake light are on
IMA indicator is on
battery light goes on & off
This started two days ago on start-up
car runs well, but is a little slow to accelerate at first.
I bought this car in March with 37000 miles on it. Oil has been changed once. Oil light is always on. Thanks for any help.

    Sounds like your alternator is bad and needs replaced. Have alternator tested.
