Warning lights on 2005 Mini Cooper S

ABS, DSC, and flat tire warning lights all are lit. Check engine light and brake light came in a week or two ago. Today interior controls went out (speedometer, gas gauge, temperature gauge, all warning lights) while driving. radio worked and headlight worked. When I pulled in my driveway, convertible top would not go up. I turned car off and on again, all interior lights/gauges came on and top went up. Any thoughts?

First have your battery and charging system checked out by a shop that specializes in MINI or at the dealer.

was there any resolution? My 2005 MCS is doing the same thing just a week after the Mini dealer installed a new battery. Could that be the problem?
